On Saturday, May 14th, VCB and Harbor School joined forces to send crews and boats to New Haven Harbor to compete in Sound School’s annual Elm City Open Water Challenge. The race, which took place on the waterfront by The Sound School, consisted of two timed heats followed followed by a one mile sprint.
The VCB Youth Rowers placed 1st in the Final One Mile Sprint and 2nd in total time for their Intermediate category.
Special thanks to Andrew Leung for organizing and chaperoning the VCB Youth Rowers on the train to New Haven. Thanks to Dave Clayton for wrangling boats and kids and Sean Lynch for driving. We are also most grateful to Roy Arrezo and his Harbor School alumnae and rowers for all their hard work wrangling boats and working with Sound School to make this a safe and fun event.
