The Masters (adult) rowers from Bainbridge Island Rowing continued their successful summer season by taking first place in five of the eight events in which they competed at the “Summer Extravaganza” on Green Lake Saturday in Seattle.

Bainbridge Masters also had two third-place finishes, and came in sixth in an unusually competitive men’s lightweight event.

The popular regatta, hosted by Green Lake Crew, included both Juniors and Masters rowers from some 27 organizations. Racing Day on Aug. 3 was sunny and pleasant and the wind modest, making for very nice rowing conditions for the nearly 70 events.

Bainbridge coaches Morgan Seeley, Grant Dull, Chris Lane and Rachele Turnbull all expressed pride and happiness at their athletes’ performances. Individual rowers found it a thrilling experience to compete and, in many cases, to win.

This was one of the last regattas of the “sprint” (1,000 meters) season.  Now, rowers and coaches look forward to reorienting their training toward the longer “head” races of the fall season, in which the distances can range from 3 to 8 miles or more, and the boats race against the clock rather than side-by-side.
