Random information on the term “Rower”:
The stretch of the River Thames between Mortlake and Putney in London, England is a well-established course for rowing races, most famously the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. It is often referred to as The Championship Course. The course is on the tidal reaches of the river often referred to as the Tideway.
In 1845 it was agreed to stage the Boat Race (which had on five previous occasions been contested from Westminster Bridge to Putney) on a course from ‘Putney Bridge to Mortlake Church tower’. The aim was to reduce the interference from heavy river traffic on the race.
The following year, a race for the Professional World Sculling Championship moved to the course for the first time. The Wingfield Sculls followed in 1861.
The course was later defined by two stones on the southern bank of the river, marked “U.B.R.” for University Boat Race; one just downstream of Chiswick Bridge, close to The Ship public house, and the other just upstream of Putney Bridge. The course distance is 4 miles and 374 yards (6,779 m), as measured along the centre of the river’s stream.
Random information on the term “OAR”:
Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR) is a movement that began in the 1970s in response to a prison riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. A group of volunteers from the community believed that individuals incarcerated could be assisted by volunteers in successfully returning to the community after their incarceration. Many offices opened around the country focused on this mission and using the name of OAR. Today, there is no longer an umbrella organization by the name of OAR, but six locations still remain with the title of OAR, each of which operates independently of one another. Some of the locations changed the meaning of the acronym to be different from the original “Offender Aid and Restoration” (for example, the location in Fairfax utilizes “Opportunities, Alternatives and Resources”). Four of these locations are based in Virginia (Arlington, Fairfax, Richmond and Charlottesville), one is in Indiana and one is in New Jersey.
