Congratulations to Jill McGill and Adrienne Bielawski of the Southern California Scullers Club for their great showing at the 2013 Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in Ontario. The girls took gold in the Under 19 Double 2000 meter race, finishing over 4 seconds faster than the second place team. The very next day McGill and Bielawski took fourth place in the Under 23 Lightweight Women's Double. After five days of racing, McGill took up her racing shell on the last day of the Regatta for the Under 17 Women Single Finals, where she placed second. With the summer season behind them, McGill is back home and focused, training for her next race in October, the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, MA.
