Head of the Schuylkill: Raining Gold

Head of the Schuylkill: Raining Gold

Our last race of the fall season, the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta, was full of beautiful weather and represented by all of Row New York: youth, adaptive, and masters. We had top notch results across the board and the race served as great regatta exposure for our Queens Novice rowers.
