NEW YORK – The Columbia lightweight rowing team, accustomed to getting out on the Harlem River at the crack of dawn, will start its Saturday earlier than many other people, in a race against Navy on April 9 that begins at 6:30 a.m.

Columbia is returning from a doubleheader of sorts, in races against Princeton and Georgetown for the Fosburgh Cup on the morning of April 2 and a race against Delaware that same afternoon.

Temperatures on Saturday morning in Annapolis should be in the mid-40s with a 20 percent chance of rain near the U.S. Naval Academy Boathouse.  The schedule of Saturday's racing follows.

6:30 a.m.   First Varsity Eights
6:50 a.m. Second Varsity Eights
7:10 a.m. Freshman Eights
