The Norwalk River Rowing youth teams had a strong opening to their fall head season at the Tail of the Fish last Saturday, returning home with 12 medals: three golds, two silvers and six bronzes. This was the youth team’s first visit to a Saratoga Springs race in several years. The day was very warm and, after a delayed start due to fog, quite sunny. Twenty-six clubs entered 310 boats in the regatta, with 27 of those entries coming from Norwalk River Rowing.
Come on down to the slab,
1 Moodys Lane,
Saturday, Sept. 20 (rain or shine!) for a brief naming ceremony celebrating the acquisition of a number of new (to us) boats. There will be light refreshments and an announcement of the names (and brief explanation of their significance). Please plan to take a few minutes to help us celebrate! If you like to bake, consider bringing some baked goods to share.
