Summer 2022 Regatta Season Recap
Regattas attended: 3
Regattas canceled on us at the last minute: 2 (Festival and Mayor's Cup)
WCR participants: 14
Boats cartopped: 1 (look here for a laugh)
Most popular event: W4+
Hardware: so many pineapples in all different forms
No traditional hardware was brought home, but the club had several fantastic finishes. Our strongest race was easily Quinsig, where we had several boats cross the line in first or second place (W1x, W4+, MX4x). Adjusted times pushed those official places down a bit, but we don't need to mention that detail. All five entries had an amazing day. The conditions of Sweeps and Sculls led to less encouraging results, but any day you get to race is still a great day. The Pineapple had the greatest attendance, and the club took home their fair share of fresh pineapples, dried pineapple, and only one canned pineapple. While it was much less formal than either of the other regattas attended, it may have been my favorite. Speaking personally, this has been the most enjoyable regatta season I have had at WCR.
