The DC Strokes Rowing Club held their annual Stonewall Regatta at the Anacostia Community Boathouse. Though the Anacostia has better conditions for rowing than the Potomac River (it has less traffic and is less choppy), it lacks the glamour of its better-known and larger neighbor. The boathouse is in a remote area with no commercial activity nearby. But on Sunday the regatta made the Anacostia river come alive, with 19 teams competing in 33 events, and food trucks serving lunch. In the morning, pink-clad runners were seen in the background, across the river in Anacostia Park for the Girls on the Run event. I was lucky enough to ride in a launch to take the following photos.
