Great day for the races! As has been the case recently, the Canadian team was too strong registering wins in the mixed, Juniors, Masters and Open races, while the USA team’s Women had a big win and put the team on the board. The Masters Race was highlighted by the boats coming together after the start, but after getting oars back in the right places went on to complete their race. The Open Race.. WOW! The win was decided at the finish line!
