The Catch 20/02/2020

February 20, 2020

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

(sometimes on a Thursday) for Nassau's best rowing club.

 

 

Nassau RC holds first annual New Providence Secondary Schools Regatta

 

What a day!  For the first time since its inception, Nassau RC has realized the dream of bringing together rowers from across the island to compete in a scholastic regatta.  Student-athletes represented their schools including:  Lyford Cay International School, Windsor at Albany, Windsor Prep, Tambearly, Genensis Academy, Nassau Christian Academy, CR Walker High School, St Augustine's College,  St Andrew's School, and Focus Point Academy. Rowers from Queens College spectated and cheered for their favourites.

 

The race course was 1000m, and the boats classes consisted of single sculls (1x), doubles (2x) and quads (4x).  Boys and Girls Novice and JV raced, with some very tight finishes!  Please enjoy some images from the day.  Nassau RC looks forward to making this an annual event!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visiting Teams - Rowing in Paradise

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nassau RC hosts our first two Rowing Tourism Teams of 2020!  A group of 8 masters scullers from Pocock Rowing Center in Seattle, WA and their coach, Coree Naslund, visited Nassau for 4 days in January.

 

Greater Lawrence Rowing, northwest of Boston, MA, arrive today with Coach Mitch McManus and 14 junior rowers.  

 

As we grow as a club, we welcome teams looking to escape the cold, see a new country, and help to support Rowing in the Bahamas. The islands are open for business!
