And That's a Wrap!
Day two of the U.S. Gondola Nationals is over.
The racing is finished,
the medals awarded,
and the celebrating continues as I write this.
This installment of the annual event has come to a close.
Everyone who competed brought their best to the contest,
representing their home ports well.
And everyone who rowed should be proud of their performances.
The winds gave us all some added challenges on the water today,
but we enjoyed a second day without rain - not bad considering the precipitation that fell in the days leading up to the weekend.
I have to give big props to Marcello and the staff of La Gondola - they made us all feel welcome in Providence.
The whole weekend was run expertly, and Marcello made it look easy.
Hundreds of photos were shot today, and when I return home,
I promise you will see many of them, along with selected video clips.
As for the results, I expect to be able to post them tomorrow.
But now, this gondolier needs some sleep!
