After an early training session at the Vegesacker boathouse on Saturday the rowers gather outside the boathouse again. However this time it is dark and none of them are here to row. It is the traditional Herringsessen in the boathouse which officially ends the season for the Vegesacker Ruderverein.

As the evening progress many speeches are given and the rowers of the Jacobs team are reminded of their great victory in this year’s Hanse Rowing Cup by President Treusch who was honoured for his great commitment towards the rowing sport and the great cooperation between the University and the rowing club.


So as the season comes to an official close the rowers have many things to look back on. The victory in the Hanse Rowing Cup surely being the best moment in the season after it had started with a defeat in the ergo cup in February early this year. But it continued with a victory in the Bremer 8er Cup and a good result in the Fari Cup in Hamburg. It seems like the freshman have enriched the team and settled in quite well. So now after having a great party and celebrating the very successful last season the rowers of Jacobs University look forward to a new challenging and hopefully as successful season in 2010.
