Head of the Genesee
This past weekend the Binghamton Rowing Team headed to Rochester to take part in the Head of the Genesee Regatta. Though the day started out with a downpour and an hour long delay due to thunderstorms, by the time our first mens 4+ boat was launching the sun came out and foreshadowed an exciting day of racing.
The Binghamton Mens 4A placed in 5th with a time of 17:14.31 behind a sweep of Clarkston and St. Lawrence mens 4 entries. The Womens 4+ A came in 8th place with a time of 19:06.61 and the Womens 4+ B followed with a time of 19:58.73.
In the 1V 8+ category, the Mens boat finished with a time of 18:01.25 and the womens 1V 8+ finished with a time of 17:34.81.
After a week of battling river flooding and fog, all 5 entries held their own at the regatta regardless of the fact that the team was unable to get on the water the week prior. Now with natural variables out of the way, we’re excited to get back into boats and get to work.
