A Day of Firsts

On Sunday, October 14, at 5:20 a.m., on the first ferry of the day, Bainbridge Island Rowing’s 103 – person junior crew team—along with its rig loaded with 11 shells—headed off to the Everett Rowing club for this season’s first regatta. Four clubs competed in the event and Bainbridge finished first in a few of the races. This picture was taken by SOMMER VINCENT, whose son Peyton—in his first year at BHS—is coxswain for the team. This was the first regatta for Peyton (as well as for many of his junior teammates), who joined the team this summer. What did his maiden voyage onto the water feel like? “Simply magical.”
