Background: “Nautical Nancy” is a variant of one of the classic CrossFit Girl WODs, “Nancy.” This version simply substitutes 400m runs for 500m rows. The origin of this rowing version of the workout isn’t entirely clear, but the earliest reference we have found is from Motor City CrossFit @motorcitycrossfit (Sterling Heights, MI), who posted on their website as the workout of the day for February 27, 2009.
