Written with input from Tristan Armesto. Three intrepid Hanlan crews made the trek to Ottawa for the Head of the Rideau regatta, held the same weekend as the Five Bridges Classic in Welland. This regatta has a beautiful winding course on the Ottawa River - the winding part can make navigating a challenge to achieve the best line and, therefore, row the shortest distance.
Competing in the Masters Double were Jennifer Dickie and Tristan Armesto who finished fourth. In the Mixed Double event, Hanlan entered a sister and brother crew - Lee and Dean Sela - who also finished fourth
Richard MacFarlane was Hanlan's sole single sculler in the regatta. Competing in the Master's Men Single, he finished 16th.
