    Well 14 to 15 is about tops due to drag and the mechanics of the rowing motion. I have many years of experience in the sport. I used to be able to do 14 to 15 at my peak (long, long ago).

    My money is on the green boat in the background.

    BTW Noe: because the rowers are now in the rivers they have closed more access points and many more no wake zones.

    The green boats are the chase boats and were on plane keeping up with the rowers
