Nereid juniors did really well at the mid-atlantic championships at Lake mercer this weekend. Here's a reference in a US rowing press release:

USRowing: "In the women’s varsity double sculls, Nereid Boat Club dominated the field, recording nearly a 20-second victory. Nereid clocked a 7:57.99, with South Jersey Rowing Club finishing second in an 8:17.40. Baltimore Rowing Club took third. In a much closer race, Shipley School won the men’s varsity double sculls, crossing the line in a 7:06.30 to finish 1.63 seconds ahead of South Jersey Rowing Club. Chestnut Hill Academy finished third."

Do you need a new libation vessel?

A submission from David Wolf:

It has come to our attention that some Nereid members may be without a libation vessel to call their own. After experimenting with a number of prototypes, and hours and hours of extensive trials, we have come up with a vessel that not only looks good, but is guaranteed to make all beverages taste better, and to improve your oarsmanship. The price is $25, including an engraved Nereid logo and the name/nickname of your choice. Please make checks payable to David Wolf, and post to 94 Windsor Road, Tenafly, NJ, 07670. The above is an artist's rendering of the vessel.
