Hello! Welcome to the latest issue of "The Catch", published fortnightly for Nassau's best rowing club.
NRC welcomes guest rowers from Dallas, TX and Denmark
On Tuesday, 9 October, NRC hosted Gina Tomaseski and Tage Staal, who shared their knowledge and experience with our morning Masters group. Rowing is a universal language, and it was a pleasure to have these new friends join us in the quad!
Anyone with rowing experience is welcome to join our morning sessions for a drop in fee of $20. Come on down!

Ethan Stanhope, who learned to row at NRC, competed in the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Ethan rows for Brentwood College School, a boarding school in British Columbia, Canada. His boat, in the Mens Youth Coxed Quad event, placed 11th out of 40, and walked through many boats after starting at the very back of the pack. Well done, Ethan! Ethan is in stroke seat, and they are pictured rowing through the Eliot bridge, turning into the last 1000m of the course.
William Stanhope (R) and Kyle Chea (L) had the good fortune of meeting one of the world's greatest single scullers, Mahé Drysdale, of New Zealand. Pictured at Cambridge Boat Club.
The 1st Annual Halloween Regatta is this Saturday, 27 October, from 9-11 AM
Please come join us to watch the Masters and Juniors race from the East end of Lake Cunningham to the dock, in head race style (against the clock). There will be 3 flights of racing, followed by a potluck cookout. All are welcomed! To volunteer or to sign up to bring food, please email Coach KariAnne at firstname.lastname@example.org
