Team 'Gansett Brings Home 7 Fishhead Trophies October 29, 2013

Saratoga Springs, NY/October 26 & 27: Our Providence scullers made the trek to the Head of the Fish Regatta equipped with their oars, shells, and, of course, their boots, since mud is frequently an issue on the banks of Fish Creek. There were 160 rowing organizations and over 2000 boats that did their best to speed down the 2 mile course in cold and windy conditions. The Narragansett Boat Club had its share of winners: Brynna McConarty (16:21.82) in the Womens Masters 1X (27-39); Kit Wise, David Gray, and Eric Watne (12:04.28) rowed with the "Free Radicals" in the winning Mens Masters 8+; in the same event Dave Rand, Bill Prichell, Scott Whitney, Dan Gorriaran, Andy Washburn, and Bay View's Caitlin Ponko were in the second place Free Radical boat that, by strange coincidence, lost by only .21 seconds. Carol Browning, Kim Worrell, Lisa Evans, Anne Fleet, Lynn Iler, Alden Bumstead, Anne Palms, Robin Gross, and Annie Medeiros, won the Women's Masters 8+ in 14:20.35, proving that rowing in fixed lineups for weeks on end is overrated. Dan Gorriaran and Jeff Brock took fishhead honors in the Mens Open 2X with a time of 14:37.12 to successfully vex the collegiate types who had their own Fishhead Trophy dreams. Artym Hayda showed he was the best of the class in the Men's Junior 1X B with a winning time of 15:09;87, 1st of 40 boats. That's very good considering he got his start in the barge spring 2012! The NBC Mixed Quad of Alden Bumstead, Sharon Cutts, Dan Potter, and David Gray took first with a time of 14:08.07. And, at the very end, Christina Mouradian and Artym Hayda were ready to race down the course in the Mixed Junior 2X, which was then cancelled due to worsening conditions. They raced down anyway, got their time (15:44.83), and, of course, their own fishhead trophy. As you can see from the list below, there were many NBC boats who placed in 2nd and 3rd place as well. All that training sparked by Dan Gorriaran combined with the camaraderie at the NBC shows its masterful effect. Now it is time to reflect on the season, return to steady state, and plan for the coming 2014 competition. Congratulations to all!!
