Rowing Family Competes in Head of Charles

Boston Globe: It all began when the Campbell family moved from Illinois to Connecticut and their oldest child discovered that he couldn’t sail a boat in landlocked New Canaan. So Andrew Jr. took to the Norwalk River in a rowing shell, followed eventually by his brother, Charlie; his father; and his sisters, Mary and Claire.

Four of them will be on the river this weekend at the 48th annual Head of the Charles Regatta, which has become a Campbell autumnal tradition.

“It’s become one of the huge events on the calendar for us,” said Andrew Jr., who will be rowing for Harvard’s lightweight 8 Sunday afternoon. “As a family, we look forward to it all year.”
