Gorge Narrows Community Rowing is proud of our masters team who competed at the USRowing Northwest Masters Regional Championship. The regatta was held in Vancouver, Washington on June 26th, 27th and 28th. Races were run on a buoyed 1,000 meter course on Vancouver Lake. The athletes thoroughly enjoyed the racing experience; our men’s 8+ had so much fun that they all now want to row sweep boats! Many of the athletes won their very first medal at this regatta. By the end of the regatta the team had achieved four first place finishes, five second place finishes, three third place finishes, two fourth place finishes and three sixth place finishes. Congratulations to the mixed 2x (60-64 years), women’s 2x (55-59 years), women’s 2x (60-64 years) and the mixed 4x (55-59 years) who crossed the finish line first. Well done to all crews!
