Whaling City Rowing’s WICKED WHALEBOAT CHALLENGE is back!

SAVE THIS DATE! Saturday, May 21st, 2016 at Pope’s Island Marina, New Bedford, MA.

The Wicked Whaleboat Challenge is a race that not only tests the speed of a crew but also tests their skills. We've designed a course that accentuates the maneuverability of whaleboats and also incorporates a variety of skills that will challenge the coordination of the boatsteerer and the crew. (But really, the best part is trying to save Bambi or Thumper from the icy sea)

Whaling City Rowing will provide the whaleboat, all you need to do, is provide the crew!
