Complete results are here: https://www.regattacentral.com/regatta/results2/?job_id=6302 One final big thanks to all the rowers for rowing hard and making the Rhinebeck Crew family proud. We had a great year and we hope to see all of our seniors back next year at the river! Thanks also to all of the coaches and parents who have given so much of their time and energy to such a wonderful group of young student-athletes. A very special shout out to the parents who showed up at the river at 5:30am with the rowers on race days to help set up and get cooking in the cold and dark (and sometimes rain!), as well as those who stayed until the end of our regattas to pack everything up. We could not have done it without you!!!

They led for the entire race and easily won their heat by 6 boat lengths. Logging their best time of the season with a 6:19 finish, this was the lowest time for both heats in their category. These freshman girls have been on a roll and surely will continue to impress us. A bright future lies ahead as varsity rowers next year!
