West Sacramento, CA - With over an hour of fog delay, the Head of the Port Regatta took off as the Hornets' first head race of the 2011 Fall Season. The men were entered in three boat categories: the Open 4+, the Open Pair, and the Open 8+.

The Open 4+ raced against a UC Davis boat that's bound for the Head of the Charles later this fall. Sac State put in a great effort to hold off Davis, but fell to a 6 second gap over the 5000m course.

The Hornets entered two boats in the Open Pair event. Both pairs made great moves on the UC Davis pair, overtaking it within the first 1000m of the race. The pairs placed both 1st and 2nd place across the finish line, with UC Davis coming in 3rd place.

The Open 8+ had two entries as well, both a novice and varsity crew. The Novice 8+ entered the race with only a month's worth of training and work and had a very good showing in their first race of the season. The novices came in 5th in front of both Cal Lightweights and UC Davis. The Varsity 8+ was seeded immediately after UC Davis, and was sent off chasing them. The Varsity 8+ caught Davis halfway through the race, and moved on to a 1st place finish.
