PCRA’s mens 4+ boat finished second at the USRowing Summer Nationals in Bethel, Ohio which took place July 13-16. In addition to the mens’ success, the women’s U17 4+ boat finished fourth. Summer Nationals is a non-qualify regatta where some of the best clubs in the nation compete.

PCRA arrived in Bethel, Ohio and began their practice on the course July 12. The following day, the boys and girls boat finished second and third, respectively, in their time trials. However, due to severe weather conditions, the semifinals were not held, and the top six boats from the time trial advanced to the finals.

Hoping to repeat their success from Youth Nationals in June, the boys had another fast race in the finals and finished in second, just two seconds behind RowAmerica Rye. The girls boat finished fourth in the finals, marking a successful performance for PCRA all around.
