Hello to all bloggers from Nina and Alexa!!! We had our first day of racing, and it was absolutely exhilarating! Not only are we at Canadian Henley, but we took our first strokes as city island rowing, which is so cool. The team dynamic and the constant  support and cheering from our teammates  was incredible and made the first day, though it had some tough racing, so much fun! The U19 Four (Natalie B, Melanie, Maggie, Natalie K, Jordan) got fifth in their heat,  Chloe and Tory's U17 Double got fifth in their heat, and our U17 Double got third place in our heat. Not of the races progressed to the semis but  all raced well and got some great experience! 
When we first got here, we went to the opening ceremony and watched beautiful fireworks kick off the event. We sat out in the grand stands, ate great pizza, and generally had a great time. So excited to be here , and so excited to see what the week will bring!
