We competed in our first official head race of 2014 today (September 24) at the Head of the Anacostia and Apple Pie Contest. It was sponsored by the Capital Rowing Club. Our entries were the Men’s 4+ (Mike, Tom, Damian, and Adam, and Heather as coxswain) and the Mixed 8+ (Adam, Tom, Ramana, Bob, Karin, Wendy, Shafer, and Bo, with Heather coxing again). Both boats finished in second place in their events! Congratulations to Ramana for completing his first race.
The post-race Apple Pie Contest consisted of 13 apple pies, which were sampled by the judges and competitors. In a great finish to a great day on the water, the First Place Apple Pie prize went to Wendy Smith!! Congratulations, Wendy!
