Yale won the heavyweight 1V
And the lightweight 1V.
AND the Jope Cup (lightweight points trophy), with a bonus presentation of the cup by Theodore Jope, the son of Ralph Jope (MIT Class of 1928), whom the cup is named after. (He's the one guy not wearing shades of blue or gray in the photo, holding the cup).
But it wasn't quite a clean sweep, with the Tigers grabbing the Rowe Cup for the heavyweight points trophy. The Rowe Cup was also donated by MIT. Rest of my day on the medals podium will be on Row2k.
In other news, the new incarnation of the Kenneth Burns Memorial Bridge is quite stunning.
