The racing season has begun! Over the next few weeks many club members will be participating in several regattas. Please keep this in mind for your weekend rowing plans as some club boats will be in-service for the regattas. Below are some dates for the near term races. If you would like to be involved, please contact Richard Park. Your fellow members are always looking for race partners for some of the team boats (4+ / double / quads)!
This weekend two of our young ladies, Mackenzie King and Faith Harper are competing at Mercer Lake, NJ in the Mid-Atlantic Champs, to try to qualify for Youth Nationals in June in the Pair. They will be taking the Blue Kaschper, returning on Sunday. In total the youth program has 26 rowers this year under the guidance of their new head coach Amelia (Min) Aspell. We wish our youth members the best of luck this season!
Other upcoming regatta weekends will be:
- June 7 – USRowing Youth Nationals
- June 15 /16 – Navy Day in Philadelphia
- June 22 – Catch the Cooper
- July 5 – 7 Independence Day Regatta in Philadelphia
- July 13 – USRowing Club Nationals
One additional item, the club needs to replace one of the coaching launches, if you are aware of anyone who is selling a small motor boat, please contact Richard Park at the email above.
