The V8 boat started the day off with an impressive time, crossing the line in 6:04.60, for a five-second win over the Bulldogs. Brown's second varsity topped Yale as well, and actually posted a time three seconds faster than Yale's varsity.
Brown's varsity four put up a seven-second win, finishing in 6:50.40. The Bears also took the top time in the 3V8 race at 6:21.40. Bruno did have the fastest time in the V4B race, but missed a turning buoy and was excluded.
