Gunston Hosts First Regatta of the Fall 21 Season

Gunston Hosts First Regatta of the Fall 21 Season
 
 
Gunston Crew had its first regatta of the season (unexpectedly on their home turf) on Sunday, October 3, welcoming the Freedom Rowers to the Corsica. Originally slated to take place at WYRA Boathouse on the Christina River Wilmington DE , the event was cancelled by US Rowing a mere days beforehand because there were not enough officials. 
 
With only four days to plan, Gunston’s Assistant Athletic & Waterfront Director (plus Head Rowing Coach!) Carter Law, Freedom Rowers’ Executive Director & Head Coach Chris Gill, and Assistant Coach Kevin White, P '22 moved the event, 14 boats, and 100+ people to Gunston’s 35-acre waterfront campus, the day after the school’s Homecoming. 
 
“We were so fortunate to have perfect weather and water conditions for rowing, but the best part was seeing all the smiling faces of the rowers and the pride of all the family members that came out to cheer on both teams! Team spirit was in abundance!” said Gill. “Coach Law did a fabulous job turning a disappointing announcement from USRowing into a memory, making an event in just four days!”
 
Freedom Rowers placed first, with Gunston Crew finishing second. The next regatta is scheduled for October 24 at Gunston (again).
