Denver Pioneer head hockey coach David Carle, Chancellor Rebecca Chopp, and the media all came out Monday afternoon on campus to meet “Fight Oar Die”, the DU supported team of veterans who will row across the Atlantic this December. Also on hand was “Woobie,” the 30-foot rowboat the men hope will carry them to victory. Skipper Alex Evans, Beau Maier, Bryant Knight and Chris Kuntz will depart from the Canary Islands and hope to make it to the finish line of Antigua in around 45 days (34 days is the race record). This will be the first time an all U.S. veteran team has entered the prestigious Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. A spokesperson for the team says they believe each team member will make around 1.6 MILLION rows of the oar during their journey (he concedes this is very rough math).
