The Catch 18/03/2019
Hello! Welcome to the latest issue of "The Catch", published fortnightly
for Nassau's best rowing club.
Thank you for attending Trivia Night!
Did you know that nine people ride in an 8+? Or that the Henley Royal Regatta runs every July on the Thames?
Many of our intrepid trivia buffs did!
Thank you to all who came out in support of Nassau Rowing Club, and to our sponsors. It's not too late to read "The Boys in the Boat", because we are planning the next event in June.
(Amazingly, no one took pictures at the event - we all followed the "no phones out" rule a little too well!)
Check out these spiffy new (to us) shoes! Thanks to NRC President Kyle Chea for schlepping up to CT from NYC to the Wintech warehouse sale!
The smaller red shoes are now in the lightweight Isabella 2x, the Wintech 1x with the aluminum rigger has a set of large shoes with an intact footplate. The SeaWolf sports a new pair to replace ones with a broken strap.
A huge "Thank You" to Jackson Mamock as well, for volunteering his time at Nassau Rowing Club on Saturday mornings.
Jackson has helped to install the new shoes, as well as beginning a project to coat the shafts of the oars, to protect our hands from old fiberglass.
Volunteers are always welcomed!

Boat rides or car rides: I love them both!

I chose rowing because... "I have no choice. My mom takes me to work. She's the best mom. I love boats!"
An interesting fact about me is... "I live on an island and I don't like the ocean".
