Great Results from SW Masters!
The Adult Novice and Experienced rowers competed well in Oakland and brought home a bronze medal
Such a fun trip with all the Masters! The drive up with the trailer was easy thanks to the quiet Scott, Philip and Nicole. We had a fantastic Dinner at Jack London Square and then we were ready to race. Some small mistakes caused us to not perform as well as we should have, but for our first endeavour that was expected. The highlights were the Bronze medal in the Men's F (60+) 4+ and a great race with the Women's 8+ in second place to the 400 then a crab and then a flying fast comeback to almost beat a crew. They showed great speed! VERY PROUD of EVERYONE! Click HERE for the full results.
