Bravest & Finest Fight it out on the Harlem
It seems the FDNY, the ‘Bravest’, had the best technique and soon left the NYPD, the ‘Finest’, in their wake. ‘Everything is about timing and that’s what we had over them because it’s all eight of us... eight of us working as one’, firefighter Caleb Dauphin said to Time Warner Cable News.
Row New York Executive Director Amanda Kraus also told the news channel: ‘It teaches really good lessons about working together, delaying gratification, learning how to be coachable, how to stick with something even when it’s hard’.
The race was followed by a fun afternoon of rowing lessons both on-land and on-water, and kids’ games, face painting, a picnic and a tour of the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse, Row New York writes on their website.
