Three NBC Doubles Get the Gold at the 49th Head of the Charles

Cambridge, MA/October 20: The Senior Masters Doubles had repeat winners in Dan Gorriaran and Mike Smith who set a new record for this event and continued their skein of victories that goes back at least ten years. Andy Washburn and Bill Prichett were repeat winners as well in the Grand Masters Doubles. To round out the doubles winners, Peter Wilhelm's junior scullers took another gold with Isaac Mocarski and Jon Dow taking first place in the Men's Youth Doubles. This is the third straight year that an NBC boat has won this event. Tracy Glover, rowing with Carin Reyonds, came close to a victory in her Senior Masters Doubles event, but had to settle for second this year. The NBC was well-represented with many of our scullers and rowers finishing in the single digits. Congratulations to all!! The names and times are listed below.
