What a fun day I had yesterday! I went to Moline IL to see Jenna race on the Mississippi in her 2nd ever regatta! Of course the mens races were the best - it is amazing how fast they go! It was a balmy 88 degrees (can you believe that!) and perfect day out. My face is a bit fried though! Above is Jenna doing her coxswain duties on the varsity 4 boat. (Jenna is the one with the gray Tshirt on telling the girls what to do!)
In the above picture you can barely make out Jenna's head! She was in a boat this race where the coxswain lays down and you only see the top of her head! In the second race she was in the #2 seat in the Novice 8 race. She is second from the right.
And their off! The row 2.5 miles upstream, rest and then race back downstream the 2.5 miles. It takes about 15 mins to row the 2.5 miles.
Crossing the finish line. Jenna is now 2nd from the left.
Unloading the boat. Jenna is 2nd from the left.
And a small peek at my next project! These blocks finish at 4"! Another Lori Smith pattern.
