We are anticipating some very exciting races this Saturday at Niles Beach for the International Dory Elimination Races! Many former championship teams will square off to find the best pairs to represent the USA against Canada in the upcoming International Races on June 23rd. The Over 40 division looks like a rematch of August Champs John Scola and Mike Harmon against former US Champs Len Billante and Jay Prince which was a photo finish in August. The Men’s Open division pits August International champs Glenn Harrington and Erik Dombrowski against 2009 champs Jimmy Tarrantino and Tom Jarvis, 2011 June champs Joe Sanfillippo and Mark Duval, Oarsmaster’s cup winner Len Robertson and partner Jeff Muise, and other crews rumored to be competing former champs Mick Cote and John Swift from New Jersey, as well as Mike and Scott Morrissey, and Joe Cominelli with recent partner Ray D’Amico. We may also have some surprise entries.
We are still looking for more entries in the Women’s, Mixed Doubles, and Junions (18 and under) divisions!
Race sign-ups are Friday at St. Peter’s Square at 6PM. (If you can’t make it down and your membership dues are paid you may email your entry to me before 6PM on Friday)
Races will begin at 8:30AM at Niles Beach Saturday. Final Eliminations (if necessary) will be the following Monday night at 6PM also at Niles Beach .
Best of luck to competitors.
Don’t miss it!
