Each year, teams of rowers from across the country gather for the Frostbite Regatta on the Little Arkansas River in Riverside. They sit on skinny boats - called skulls - racing quickly through the water to the cheers of enthusiastic crowds. The 26th annual race was held this past Saturday. In this Audio Postcard, you’ll hear races starting and the rowers with their coxswains shouting navigational and inspirational commands.
Sounds for this postcard were gathered in 2015 by KMUW’s Beth Golay.
