Hyndsight Vision Systems sponsors rowing team
Hyndsight Vision Systems of Peterborough sponsored the Merrimac River Rowing Association of Lowell, Mass., at the Royal Henley Regatta held July 3 to 7 in Oxfordshire England. The four-plus MRRA crew members included UNH graduates Mike Poreba and Jon Dwyer, Franklin Pierce graduate Rich Connell and University of Massachusetts graduates Tim Cotreau and coxswain Sarah Ivey.
As a tune-up race the team competed at the Reading Town Regatta, winning the Open 4+ event. The team made its way into the quarterfinals at the curvy 13-kilometer Henley race on the Thames River. The MRRA team was defeated by less than three-quarters of a boat length by Taurus Boat Club from Harpendon Herts, U.K.
