Two of Hanlan's Masters men scullers made the trip to Gravenhurst to compete in the second annual Muskoka Fall Classic head race held on Saturday, September 6. The course covers the entire east-west axis of Gull Lake. Competing in the Masters Men 50+ categories put Harry Vanderlugt and John Sherrick at a considerable disadvantage age-wise. Nevertheless Harry Vanderlugt placed 5th in a time of 13:39, a considerable improvement over his performance last year. John Sherrick had a time of 14:45 to finish 10th.
The deadline to order uniforms, required for all Hanlan athletes planning to attend regattas or head races, is just 9 days away. Each athlete requiring Hanlan unisuits, tshirts, singlets, shorts, etc. needs to place an order online by Sunday May 12. Orders can be placed at www.regattasport.com. Click on iTeamsHome on the left side of the screen. Select Hanlan BC and enter the code that has been sent to you in an email from your coach.
Your order will be delivered by June 15 in time for the first regatta (but not in time for the Head of the Martindale).
All the best for a great racing season.
