Oakland Strokes men's youth 8+ boat finished fifth out of 85 entries at the Head of the Charles Regatta held in Boston on the Charles River Oct. 20-21. The Strokes finished well ahead of their Californian rivals from Marin, Norcal (Redwood City), and Los Gatos. For high school rowers, there is nothing quite like racing at the Head of the Charles Regatta.

For this year's squad, coach de Regt pulled from his 2018 National Championship crews, including from the Gold Medalist Lightweight Eight and Silver Medalist Varsity Eight.

The Men's Youth 8+ boat was comprised of Ryan Tripp (Piedmont HS), Adrian Layer (Piedmont HS), John Mark Ozaeta (Miramonte HS), Matthew Boranian (Head-Royce), Richard Reid St (Joseph Notre Dame Alameda), Andrew Simpson (Berkeley HS), Andrew Stoddard (Piedmont HS), Carter Young (San Ramon Valley HS), and coxswain Audrey Gates (Miramonte HS).
