If there is one thing to say about the province of Newfoundland, there are events all over, for every age group, and for every member of the family. This was my first time taking in the Harbour Grace Regatta. It was the 147th Running of the Harbour Grace Regatta, which makes it the second oldest sporting event in Newfoundland, second only to the historic St. John’s Regatta.
KIXX Country Radio was delighted to sponsor a first-time team of Rowers. They were 8 years old, rowing for the first time in the ‘Girls Under 10 Division’. And even though the oars were bigger than the girls themselves, they made excellent time, and did everyone proud.
I have included some pics of the fabulous girls and say hats off to their accomplishments. If I had to row the distance they did, I would still be on that lake today.
