New York State Championships

For the first time in its history, all of the Rhinebeck Crew entries advanced in the time trials and into the finals heats. While Saturday was a beautiful day for rowing, Sunday turned cold and blustery and the races were canceled after only a few hours.

Our Novice boats once again performed impressively at States:
Womens Novice Four A came in second place overall in the scholastic division (this is the third year in a row that the program has medaled in this event!).
Womens Novice Four B won their respective finals 2 heat with an impressive time.
Rhinebeck also had two Men’s Novice 4 boats advance in the time trials and place 4th and 5th overall in the scholastic division.

In the Varsity division:
Mens Lightweight Four placed 2nd in their respective finals heat.
Mens Varsity Four advanced to the finals
Womens Lightweight Eight advanced to the A Finals and placed 4th in the scholastic division
Womens Lightweight Four A and B boats advanced to the finals
Womens Senior Four advanced to the finals
Womens Junior Four advanced to the finals

Full results are here:

And thanks once more to all of the parents, coaches and rowers who pitched in to help during the weekend, with a special shout out to Chris Lipscomb (and Monique!) for driving the trailer to and from the event. We had a big group that stayed until the bitter (cold) end, which was greatly appreciated!

Hope to see everyone at the Novice races this Sunday!

Finally, please put the Rhinebeck Crew BBQ/Year-end Banquet on your calendars, Saturday June 12 from 4-7pm at the Poughkeepsie Boathouse. All rowers are to show up at 3pm for the annual boat clean up and storage effort.
