2018 Fall Racing is a Wrap!

Head of the Lagoon, November 10-11 marked the last race on the calendar for the 2018 fall racing season at Marin Rowing. Unfortunately it was not the culminating weekend of racing we were looking forward to. The devastating Camp Fire in Chico is all too reminiscent of the Sonoma fires last year in October. The Junior’s Novice squads, Masters Women, Master Men and Novice Adults all planned to race but due to air quality not all were not able to race around the twisty turns of the Foster City Lagoon. Big shout out to those who braved the conditions and were able to race (see results below.)

Head of the American was a good showing for MRA racing in 17 events and capturing gold in the Women’s Junior Varsity 8+, 4+ and Ltwt 8+; Men’s Junior U-17 8+ ; Women’s Master Ltwt 1X, 4+ and the Mixed Master 8+ (full results below.)

The conditions proved to be challenging in the 54th Head of the Charles where 11 Marin boats raced down the course. Shout out to the Women’s Sr Master 50+ 8+ for a 3rd place victory and the Men’s Sr Master 50+ 8+  who captured 2nd! Full results below.

Final shoutout to Maggie Fillmore & Mark Huffman for their first place victory in the Mixed Masters 2X at the 2019 Head of the Port, COMPLETE RESULTS >>>

And that’s a wrap! Its that time of the year where we throw ourselves into the depths of winter training. Best part of the season, right??
