The Catch 18/02/2019

Hello! Welcome to the latest issue of "The Catch", published fortnightly for

Nassau's best rowing club.

Scenes from Lake Cunningham

It's business as usual out on Lake Cunningham. Winter programs are at the halfway mark, where it has finally "clicked" for the Learn to Row classes. Now comes the fun part; going fast!

NRC Juniors are training 6 days a week; 2 are dedicated land days, as we build muscle, endurance, and perfect technique.

Six of our juniors will be representing

Nassau Rowing Club at the Miami International Regatta in April!

Nassau Rowing Club at Powerade Potcakeman Triathlon

NRC was well represented at Jaws Beach last Sunday.

Viviane and Jeremy Proffitt, Coach KariAnne Kulig, and junior member Sascha Proffitt assisted with kayak support during the swim portion of the race.

It was inspiring to see the athletes in action!

Rita Roy competed in the Womens event, and Jacqueline and Ben Derbyshire also volunteered on the course.

New youth LTR rower Mia Gardner was spotted volunteering in a food truck, cooking burgers alongside dad Eddie!

We were awarded a thoughtful plaque, thanking Nassau Rowing Club for volunteering. There is a great athletic community here on the island, and we at NRC are proud to be a part of it.
