RaceRoundUp: Bayada Regatta

Para-rowers from the US and Canada raced 1000 meters down the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA.

Capital Adaptive (CARP) had 9 rowers compete in 12 events and won 15 medals: 8 gold, 4 silver, 3 bronze. We medaled in every event we raced in. Every rower medaled at least once.

Official event names are below. Note: There is a new classification system in para-rowing: PR 1 (formerly known as AS: arms/shoulders), PR 2 (formerly known as TA: trunk/arms), and PR 3 (formerly know as LTA: legs/trunk/arms).

In event #1, Dammie raced in a single. He wore a headset and Leon from Capital Jr.s was in his own single, ahead of him, with a headset with a microphone, giving Dammie steering instructions. This has been a goal of Dammie’s for years and thanks to Leon and support of the club in allowing coaching hours, loaning us Leon, as well as the Skyes boat with which he raced, we were finally able to make it happen!

Thank you Capital for the notes and messages of encouragement this weekend! A massive shout-out again to Club PM for helping unload the trailer upon our return to the boathouse! And again, can’t thank all our volunteers from club Capital, JUNIORS, and the community at large for all the support- we can’t do it without you!
Go Capital, go CARP!
