A big thank you to Global Foundries for their generous grant for the purchase of new oars for competition this Spring


After an excellent Tail of the Fish, what's next?

We are coming into the heart of the head race season, October. For SRA it means we travel longer distance and we travel two weekends in a row. This weekend the Varsity Girls, Varsity Boys, Freshman Girls and Masters will travel out to the New Hampshire Championships. This race is 3 miles and is an excellent way to gear up for the Head of the Charles the next weekend. The Freshman Boys team will attend the Head of the Q on the Charles River, which gives younger rowers a chance to compete in the singles against kids their own age.  The following week we will send Varsity, Masters, and Alumni boats to the Head of the Charles.

Looking a little closer, we see that there are only 2 weeks left to the 2014 Head of the Fish! Have you put in for your entries and made your hotel reservations yet? We hope this year's Regatta is even more competitive than last years!

Until next time,

Saratoga Rowing Association


Gearing up for Saturday

The entries are in and the course is in, now we can look forward to Saturday and the Tail of the Fish. Looking ahead at the forecast, and we all know how fickle those can be, it looks like we are in for great weather this weekend. There is a projected high of 80 with what looks like a slight quartering tailwind. It looks to be a great way to open up racing on the Fish this fall.

See you soon!
