RESOLUTE & Jack Carlson
Jack Carlson has been a true friend of RESOLUTE for many years. He started rowing on the Charles in them at Buckingham, Browne and Nichols. Two years ago, he assembled the Women’s Super Eight that beat the undefeated US National Team and won Championship Eights at the Head of the Charles Regatta in a RESOLUTE. That same year he also won Henley and Canadian Henley in RESOLUTES. As a new coach at St. Marks last spring he ordered a new RESOLUTE 4+ Wingboat for his crew.
Jack is the author of the recently published and highly acclaimed book, Rowing Blazers. Early this summer he finished up his PhD at Oxford. A busy guy to say the least.
For his leadership and multitude of contributions to rowing, and especially in recognition of his latest Bronze at the World Championships, we candidly support Dr. Carlson as US Rowing’s Athlete of the Year.
There are many talented and extraordinary athletes who have been nominated as finalists. Whoever you support, we implore you to celebrate excellence in the sport of rowing by casting your vote and encouraging others to do so as well.
