Capital Spirit shown brightly at the Anacostia Community Boathouse throughout 2020, with CRC offering the only formal sculling programs in the DMV with the easing of quarantine restrictions in March. Members, old and new, learned new water skills, made new friends, and found much-needed stress release in impossibly skinny boats. Mothers and sons, fathers and daughter, married couples bonded in doubles; the over 21 crowd learned cocktail magic virtually with The Alibi; the Juniors program continued to expand our sport with the next generation; and our Adaptive Athletes adapted to working out in their living rooms while watching computer screens for guidance.
It hasn't always been easy, but with a dedicated group of volunteers, we've overcome the challenged presented and blazed across every goal line we set. Please help us continue these successes in 2021, and we'll see you on the water!
