Capital and Occoquan Sprints

RRC attended two regattas on July 9 and 10: Capital Sprints and Occoquan Memorial Sprints. All races were 1000m, and our team competed in the 1x, 2x, and 4x events. We also had a composite boat with Carolina Masters Rowing for the Women’s Masters 8+ event! Former coach and club member, Emily Cleveland, lives near Occoquan now and was able to join us both days!

    We had a great time despite some rain and a few waterlogged hazards on Saturday, and we are all now pros at derigging and rigging our boats and loading and unloading the trailer!

    Our team did very well and brought home lots of new bling:
