Congrats to the 2018 Board of Directors!

Hello Capital!

Many thanks to all who voted in the elections. Please find below Capital‘s 2018 elected Board of Directors and Program Reps. Congratulations to our newest leadership team; we are excited for 2018!

A HUGE thank you to our Volunteers of the Year: Stephanie Acerra and Lain Wilson. Steph, you spend countless hours driving trailers, wrangling and organizing all of our regatta entries, keeping track of our US rowing memberships and so much more. Lain, we can always count on you to step up when help is needed…at learn to row, a community festival, or a regatta…someone says help and you magically appear. Thank you both for your time, excellent driving skills (Steph) and wisdom. Words can not express our gratitude for all you both do for the club.
