Rowing referees do some very strange things, but this is one of the funniest caught on film -- thanks to Jim Flanders and his camera phone. The refs. were told to lay out their suits ready for action and then the ref. who donned their suit first won a prize. A bit of fun with a serious side. Many of us rely on these suits to keep us warm and cozy when the weather is ugly and the racing must go on. Spring in the Northeast can be just winter under a different name.
