This all gals team spawned from the NJDBC program and friends with the objective to gather gals for races. Captains Amy and Samantha built a roster of enthusiastic strong women in 2017 which took home some pretty bling! These captains have a full schedule planned for the crew in 2018. More races, means more fun!!!
