~Mother's Day Regatta 2011~

For a change this year the weather was beautiful! Warm and sunny with only a slight wind in St. Catharines.

The DRC sent a small group of high school crews to race this day.
First race of the day (and first race ever!) was the Senior Mens Double of Mac and Tom Griffith. Mac and Tom came to the club during winter training and stuck it out to get on the water in April. They had a tough heat but beat a boat in their first race. Great job guys!
