What a Fabulous Regatta!
Coaches, Rowers, Referees, and Spectators:
A most sincere thank you goes out to all who participated in, attended or volunteered at this year's Sarasota Invitational Regatta 2015.
Because of your participation, this was far and away the most competitive and exciting SIR ever. We are thrilled that so many teams came from throughout Florida, as well as our guests from around the country and Canada and hope that you will put us on your calendar for next year.
We had some incredibly close races, several of which were won by hundreths of a second. The IMAS electronic timing and photo finish system worked extremely well, especially in the very close races. We thank them for their support and efforts.
A special congratulations goes out to all the winners of the Diamond Vault Champion of the Lake Cups. To be the Overall Fastest Competitor in any of these categories is a great accomplishment and you should be proud.
