This past Saturday Oct. 21st was an ideal day for a rowing competition. The Sound School rowing seamanship program traveled to Hull MA to compete in the 31st Head of the Weir river race. Over 67 boats competed this year in the 5.25 mile race. In the Coxed 4 category the crew of the Quinnahog finished first with a time of 59 minutes and 43 seconds. The crew of Hoda Jane finished second just 16 seconds behind them. First Constitution was not far behind and finished 4th in just over an hour. In what was categorized as an Historic row the crew of the Gig Sound finished first in the youth category with a winning time of 47 minutes and 23 seconds just 4 seconds behind a crew of seasoned adult rowers from Belfast Maine. Commitment, technique, hard work and good sportsmanship were what the Sound school rowers brought to this event. Congratulations to all the rowers, great effort.
Thanks to the parents, and grandparents for all their support and to Jack Walsh and Neil Geist for helping to make our journey to Hull run so smoothly.
