Regatta attracts competitors from across region

The 27th Diamond State Masters Regatta, which is sponsored by the Wilmington Rowing Center, recently drew rowers from throughout the area, according to an article on

More than 800 people in 43 teams took part in the two-day event, which was held on Noxontown Pond in Middletown, about 30 miles from Wilmington itself. The weather was ideal, with low wind, calm water, and an overcast sky.

Regatta director John Schoonover said the Masters Rowers love this particular regatta, because of the beauty of the setting. Plus, rowing on this pond allows competitors to see how the race develops as it nears the finish, which is exciting for everyone. Schoonover himself acted as coxswain for the alumni rowers from St. Andrews. The coxswain sits in the back of the boat, steering the craft, and encouraging the rowers.

The event has grown significantly in size since it began, so much so that a second day of competition has been added, and the age limit has been lowered to include those as young as 21. The first day, the races were sculling-style, where rowers used two oars with one in each hand. Sunday’s races were sweep rowing, in which the rower uses one oar and holds it with both hands.

With the use of colorful banners, venues can be suitably decorated for events like this.
