Cambridge, Oct. 19, 2013 -- Boston University undergraduate heavyweight rowers Jamie Odgers, left, and Peter Roberts, right, compare blisters in the DeWolfe Boathouse in Cambridge, MA, before the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, MA. "[The blisters] are literally all from 'feathering'," said Roberts, referring to a rowing technique in which one hand is subject to friction and heat. Odgers and Roberts are partners in the Men’s Club Eights Fourth Varsity, Bow #6. Odgers sits Bow, and Roberts sits number 2 seat. Photograph by Carolyn Bick.
