Hull Snow Row 3/4 11:30 AM

FYI - always fun to watch the start & see some beautiful wooden boats.

Saturday, March 4, 2006
Start time: 11:30 a.m., coxswain's meeting: 11:00 a.m.
Registration form

Windmill Point Boathouse, 185 Main Street, Hull

The museum's signature rowing race, the winter Snow Row, covers a 3 3/4 mile triangular course starting off the beach at Windmill Point, continuing around Sheep Island, past the Peddocks Island day marker, and back to shore. Huge crowds gather on the beach beside the museum's Windmill Point Boathouse to share in the wild, LeMans-style start, unpredictable weather, and one-of-a-kind gathering of boats and athletes. Entirely within view of the shore, the race is a superb spectator event and is also a rare opportunity to see, up close, rowers of all ages and skill levels and their stunning array of wooden pulling boats on the beach and in action wherries, peapods, whitehalls, dories, ocean shells, kayaks, pilot gigs, whale boats, and Irish currachs.
