Ocean City High School Boy’s Fall Crew Team enjoyed the perfect fall weather conditions today as they raced Mainland High School Boy’s Crew in this morning’s “Head of the Bay” Regatta. The regatta is held in Ocean City’s back bays near the 34th Street Bridge. Unlike the 1500 meter sprint races the rowers normally compete in, the Head of the Bay Regatta is a whopping three miles long. That’s more than three times the normal racing distance!

Ocean City’s rowers were up to the challenge. Both of their 1st and 2nd boats won their races. Their freshman took 3rd place.

“The boys had a great row,’  said OCHS Crew’s Head Coach Michael Millar. “Racing Mainland is a great tradition. Every race against them is a white-knuckle event. Mainland comes to Ocean City in the fall, then we race them in Ventnor in the spring on their home course.”

Next weekend, both boys and girls OCHS crew boats will be racing in the prestigious  “Head of the Schuykill” Regatta in Philadelphia, traditionally known as the best head race regatta in the world.
