Sarasota Crew members broke three Guinness World Records while rowing on stationary rowing machines at their fourth annual Ergathon Fundraiser. The varsity women's team broke the record for the fastest 100,000 meter row; the mixed junior's team also broke the record for the fastest 100,000 meter row; and the more than 180 participants broke the record for the most members of a team to row 100 meters in an hour.
The event raised money for equipment and scholarships and and the team also spent the past three weeks collecting food donations at its location at Bay Preserve in Osprey and sponsored an All Faith’s food drive during the ergathon.
