Although the Wooden Boat regatta is an annual event, this year felt a little different.
I noticed lots of new faces who are quickly developing skillz… And the missing faces of veteran rowers who are off to the Budapest World Masters… The only constant were the boats, who have seen their fair share of crew changes in their lifetimes.
Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all who honor these magnificent shells by keeping them where they belong – on the race course. I know I am leaving people out but a big thank you to Bill M. for taking the helm this year…and many thanks to Steve Chapin, Kathleen and John, to Deborah, Kristin and Otto, Jim M, Roger, Dave S. and countless others from launch drivers to registration takers to boat repairers and everyone who pitches in to make this a fun event.
And thank you Debra Feinman for capturing it all with your artistic eye. All photos on this page are courtesy of Debra… For the full gallery of her race photos, go here
