The Crew's fall racing began on 24 September with the Tail of the Fish, on Fish Creek, in Saratoga Springs. Competing for Northwood were Gus Garvey '25 and Colin Kis '24 in the Boys' Varsity Single; Ashley Guevara '24 in the Girls' Varsity Single; and the Nelson twins, Christie-Ann and Amanda '23, in the Girls' Varsity Double. The regatta, occurring for the first time since 2019, ran in a shortened form, as a 3000-meter "stake" race (out-and-back time trial) on a 1500-meter buoyed course in the wide straightaway of the creek.
