PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association recently celebrated its 10th anniversary by holding the first John Halberg Memorial Scrimmage.
Halberg was a founder of the rowing program. This scrimmage was the first step toward turning this event into a full-scale regatta, with rowing crews from all over the region invited to attend.
Rowers from all OPRA programs: juniors, varsity, novice, recreational and masters raced in 1,200-meter head style races out in front of the OPRA Boathouse on Ediz Hook.
OPRA athletes raced in 1xs, 2xs, 4xs and 4+. Most rowers competed twice, putting on a great show of competition and boat handling skills.
After the completion of the races, junior rowers gave families and friends an opportunity to get into an 8+ boat and rowed them around Port Angeles Harbor to see what it was like in a racing shell and what demanding work these rowers put in to hone their craft.
