North Bay Rowing Club (NBRC) kicked off its spring season this past Saturday (2/22/14) at the Novice Invitational Regatta at Lake Merced in San Francisco. Eleven Clubs from the Southwest Region brought hundreds of their first year athletes to compete.
NBRC competed in four events and posted very competitive times in all.
"Our performance today exceeded my expectations. These kids have been working very hard all fall and winter and were rewarded with great results today. We showed that we can compete against some of the fastest programs in the country" said Coach Will Whalen.
NBRC's next race is up at Lake Natoma in Sacramento on March 9th.
The NBRC athletes will also be competing against each other in downtown Petaluma on March 29th at their "Erg-a-thon" Fundraiser. The squad will divide up and race 100 miles against each other on rowing machines at the corner of Western and Petaluma Boulevard.
