Ridgewood NJ, After a cold and rainy March, the Ridgewood Crew
Team is excited to be back on the water! Training hard at this spring’s temporary docks in Bergen County’s Overpeck Park has proved beneficial for the athletes. Special thanks to Don Bosco for welcoming our rowers at their facility.
The Ridgewood Crew team recently participated in the third and fourth of the 2019 Manny Flick Series of rowing races before the annual regatta season begins. In the rowing world, the only regattas on the Schuylkill are the upcoming City Championships, the Catholic League Championships, and the Stotesbury Cup Regatta. To give the crews time to size up the
competition beforehand, local teams came up with a series for the rowers at the “flicks” on the famous Schuylkill race course. The “flicks” are named after Manuel A. Flick, a father who organized the first series in the 1950s.
