Lindsay Jennerich (Victoria, BC) - light women’s double (with Patricia Obee) : "Obviously we wanted to go out and win the rep, but what we have to take home with us is recognizing that as we are moving through the regatta, we are improving immensely. The semi is going to be an extremely tough race... we'll have to race that semi like it's a final."
Douglas Vandor (Dewittville, QC) - light men’s double (with Morgan Jarvis): “We had a sluggish start in the heat, so we really wanted to come out firing in the rep. That's what we did, but we stumbled in the last 500m and when the other crew started coming through us we weren't able to respond, and ended up with a fourth-place result."
-Men’s pair semi-final, and men’s eight final at 12:30 pm local time.
