Gunnery Boys First Boat finishes 6th at Head of The Charles Regatta

The Gunnery Boys' first boat finished 6th out of a field of 86 (from 40+ states and a few different countries) at this year's Head Of The Charles Regatta in Boston. Perhaps more significant is that fact that they did this from a starting position of 74th. Conditions for the race were outstanding and no doubt contributed to our time of 16:41.229 a Gunnery record for the three-mile course. Coxswain Juliette Gaggini (sophomore) navigated flawlessly for bow seat Kasparas Kersanskas (junior), 2 seat Nathan Quelle (freshman), 3 seat and Co-Captain Jake Perda and Stroke seat and Co-Captain Kenyon Kay.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
