Following please find various articles and other media on the Diamond State Masters Regatta –
Participants are coming for the Diamond State Masters Regatta this weekend on Noxontown Pond at St. Andrew’s School near Middletown. Over its 24 years, the brainchild of Wilmington Rowing Center board members John R. Schoonover and the late Howard Smith has become one of the nation’s top competitions for adult rowers.
It had been a few years since Wilmington Rowing Center’s men quad team took first place at the Diamond State Masters Regatta. But on Sunday, the four-man sculling boat were champs in the 1,000-meter race finishing in 3 minutes, 30 seconds.
“It’s great, exhilarating,” said Doug Green who was the two-man in the quad. “It’s wonderful to be back.”
