Portland Wrap Up

After a weekend of explosive weather, the Vikings came home with the 3V posting the fastest time for the day at the Portland LOOP and the V4+ getting second, the 2V4+ placing first (finishing in front of SU and U of O boats from the race prior) and the 2v8 getting second at the Portland Fall Classic. The team is looking ahead now to continued racing at UW next weekend for the Head of the Lake. The V8 will take to the water for it’s first race this year, as will a novice 8 and two 4+s. Race schedule for this weekend is posted in the schedule section with links to the race lineups included.
