Here are the crews for Mothers Day.  Everybody is racing ONE event only, with the exception of two coxswains (Drew & Kate McG), Jesse Manzin, Alex Jones and Alex Tessier, and Kenzie, who will race in two events.  Stefan has allowed two events for the above individuals because it is the only way of giving somebody else one event.  If anybody has any questions about this, please e-mail or text me.
Dina Gadsdon has graciously offered to put together a document that will detail what a rowing regatta is all about. Novice rowers, you are about to experience the most exhilerating part of our sport! You will go from sitting in the starting gates, feeling your heart trying to beat its way out of your chest, wondering why you ever decided to get into this sport…..to finishing your race and thinking “THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!” And novice parents, you are about to enter a whole new realm of fun!!
A quick word about the crews below. Mothers Day features heats in the morning and finals in the afternoon. We don’t know yet, whether a heat will be required for your race–we will know that a few days before the regatta. We will post times here.
