The Catch 01/04/2019

April 2, 2019

 

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

for Nassau's best rowing club.

 

 

Spring Fling Regatta!

 

Thank you to all who came out to support NRC's club scrimmage this Saturday!  Juniors raced 1000m and masters and new novices sprinted 500m.  We rowed through the rain and into a rainbow.  NRC members and families enjoyed a cookout post race, and new friends were made.

 

 

The closest races of the day were between the Junior and Masters Novices.  The Masters 4x won with a time of 2:41.55 (500m) over the Juniors at 2:42.42. It's a game of inches!
 

 

The mixed Junior 4xs were even closer at 2:02.23 and 2:02.41!  Congratulations to Cynthia, Joey, Michelle, and Rita, and Noah, David M, Chryslin, and Sarah!!!
