Results from this past weekend’s Head of the Giblet regatta in Orlando, Florida are in….and they are impressive. The North Palm Beach Rowing Club’s youth rowing team won a staggering 6 GOLD medals, 2 SILVER medals, and 3 BRONZE medals at what is historically one of the biggest fall races in Florida. Our masters, meanwhile, brought home an additional BRONZE medal – icing on the cake for an overwhelmingly successful regatta by any measure, even if that measure is the camaraderie and fun had by parents, masters, and juniors alike. Even more noteworthy than the victories themselves were the wide margins our boats built stroke by stroke over the competition in the course of this tough 5000m race. This is truly where our team’s fitness, focus, and hard work this fall paid off.
There are no individuals in this sport, regardless of the event. Each success on the race course is made possible by the teammates and coaches who push, develop, and mentor our rowers to their best. Well done to ALL of the NPBRC team. You have made us proud.
