This Saturday, March 29th, High Point Rowing Club will host a regatta at Oak Hollow Lake. The high school team consists of males and females from the Greensboro, High Point, Kernersville, and Thomasville area. Saturday morning, HPRC will face off against Triangle Rowing Club. Coach Gene Kinimonth, originally from Australia, wants to add a little old-world elegance to the event. Therefore, you'll see ties and bowties and the fastest crews will earn vintage silver punch cups for this inaugural regatta which, will become an annual event. The races begin at 9:30 am.
The above photo is not taken in Greensboro, but of HPRC in a previous season when they were just getting started. The team has grown by leaps and bounds and is an up and coming sport in North Carolina and HPRC is a fabulous team. Let's wish them luck on Saturday. Come out and support the crews if you can!
