Spring 1999 Covered Bridge Regatta
Post date: Feb 5, 2009 6:23:44 AM
350 rowers from 13 clubs traveled from as far as Pullman and San Francisco to participate in the 1999 Covered Bridge Regatta on April 10th. Rowers competed in 2000m Open and Junior events, and 1000m Masters events.
The weather in the morning was cold, wet, and windy. Several of the Masters men's singles in Event #1 never even made it to the starting line, and an experienced Masters 4+ capsized. Regatta organizers were concerned, but the wind calmed down later in the morning, and there was some good racing throughout the rest of the day.
