PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Brown women's crew will welcome a new member to the family on Saturday, March 10, at 11:30 p.m., as they will have a boat christening at the Marston Boathouse in Providence, R.I. The boat will be named in honor of Roseanne Flynn, mother of Christine Flynn '08, and former head of the Brown Women's Crew Parents Group.
Roseanne, who has supported Brown rowing for countless seasons, passed away late last year. Her daughter Christine was a two-time National Champion with the Bears.
The Boat will be used in all Varsity 8 races this season as the Bears look to defend their 2011 NCAA Division I Championship.
