The Battle of the Bay regatta between Berkeley High, St. Ignatius Prep, Oakland Strokes and Marin Rowing Association is usually the Jackets’ toughest early-season test, and the 2014 edition was no different, with Marin taking home most of the honors.
Conditions on the Estuary on Sunday morning, March 9 were ideal for rowers and spectators alike. Sunny skies and very little wind meant that the four Bay Area teams enjoyed great racing conditions.
Highlights for Berkeley High included the men’s Varsity and Junior Varsity 8s: both boats were in close battles with the crews from Saint Ignatius and were able to come out on top. Complete results of Berkeley High races are here (PDF).
Up next for the Jackets is the Pacific Invitational: March 23 at Lake Merced. Berkeley High will be racing crews from Artemis, Humboldt, Norcal, North Bay, Pacific, Palo Alto, River City, St. Ignatius, Serra High School, and Upper Natoma Rowing Club.
