There are some fish heads will be getting a few more miles on them after making their way from Lake Pulaski, down to Saratoga Lake and now throughout the Northeast and a lucky few into Canada (explain that at the border….).
The weather cooperated enough to get all the races in on Sunday for the junior divisions with Saratoga Rowing Association leading the way with 12 overall category wins followed by Greenwich Crew with seven, Niagara Falls with five, St. Catherines Rowing Club with four and Community Rowing Inc. with three.

Here’s to hoping that Mother Nature doesn’t rear her ugly head again Sunday as the Head of the Fish heads into it’s second day and that it is a full day of racing.
The adults and colleges were blown off for Saturday’s afternoon racing, but Sunday looks to be much more wind-friendly than Saturday was.
Here is the race schedule with bow numbers courtesy of Saratoga Rowing Association and the ‘Timing Princess’ Susan Pruiksma.

Results will be posted to @NYSRowing on Twitter as you expect. Reda will be off-site posting and staying warm. Saturday’s weather also pushed me out to Gloversville for the Section 2 field hockey championships, times three, so good luck to all teams.
Stay warm, row fast!
Well, Mother Nature took umbrage to the annual last weekend of October regatta in Saratoga Springs. When grizzly, seasoned regatta director Chris Chase called the weather Saturday morning ‘miserable’ you knew it was bad.
With the wind gusts increasing heading into the afternoon, the second slate of racing was cancelled as it was chock full of small boat events.
Listed are the complete Sunday morning results courtesy of ‘Timing Princess’ Susan Pursmiska and her talented crew.
