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….).

Sunday hopeful Head of the Fish schedule

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!

For the more than 100 winners over the weekend, a fast time covering the 2.3 mile course from above the Stafford Bridge and finishing a few hundred yards in front of the Route 9P Bridge, you will be awarded with the most interesting trophy in sports – a mounted fish head.
