The Catch 14/10/2019

Hello! Welcome to the latest issue of "The Catch", published fortnightly for Nassau's best rowing club.

Juniors Medal in Miami!

Seven members of NRC's Junior Team travelled to Miami Beach this weekend to compete in the Head of the Indian Creek Invitational Regatta.

This was the first race for three of the rowers, David Roy, Lawson Major, and Jessica Proffitt. Second-season Novices Jackson Mamock, Leila Valerius, Sascha Proffitt, and Lily Rose Jamieson made up the rest of the boys and girls quads, respectively. A Miami Beach rower, Ellis Landauer, joined our squad as bow man in the Boys 4x.

These Novice rowers earned a gold medal (girls) and silver (boys). New friends and connections were made amongst the rowers and coaches alike, as well as old acquaintances reunited. We hope to make this regatta an annual race for us. Thank you to Miami Beach RC for hosting!
