EUGENE, OREGON – The Bainbridge Island Rowing Club’s Men’s Master oarsmen ruled the waves at the recent Covered Bridge Regatta.

The Bainbridge Island Rowing Club’s Men’s Masters continued their winning ways at the Covered Bridge Rowing Regatta in Eugene, Oregon last weekend. The Bainbridge teams won every event they entered, and the only second-place finish was in the event where two Bainbridge four with coxswain crews finished first and second.

The Bainbridge men also won the premier eight oared event in a field of eight crews that also included Oregon State Alumni (second), Station L (third), Corvallis (fourth), Sammamish (fifth), Oregon Association (sixth), North Bay from California (seventh) and Willamette (eighth).

Master rower John Christensen of Bainbridge had the distinction of winning gold medals in three events, including the coxed four, the men’s eight, and the men’s single shell race.

The regatta was held on Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16. The bad weather on Saturday caused the mixed men’s and women’s masters eight event to be cancelled.

Fortunately, conditions improved for the other competitions on Sunday.

The Bainbridge Women’s Masters four placed third in their event, and there were also several other Bainbridge women crews that competed but did not medal in the event.

The line ups of the victorious teams are: Mark Olason, John Christensen, Kurt Frost, Don Fannon, William McGonagle, Tim Goss, Nicolai Otte, Brandon Fleet and cox Jesse Pomerantz (men’s eight, first); Olason, Christensen, Frost, Fannon and cox Paige Montgomery (men’s four, first); McGonagle, Fleet, Eric Diggers, Malcolm Saunders and cox Meagan Ledoux (men’s four, second): Otte, Goss, Caleb Samson, Anthony Oddo and cox Sam Bloom (men’s four, first); and Tammy Galbraith, Ann Livengood, Meloni Courtway, Karol Danielsson and cox Addison Taylor (women’s four, third).
