SPRING KICK-OFF PARTY
Our season kick-off party is held in early Spring. This year it will be on Friday, April TBDth, 2017 at the TBD in New Bedford at 6:00pm. This is a fun relaxed event to get the season started. We have raffle items, new tee's and gear for sale. It's a wonderful time to reacquaint everyone and kick around ideas for the upcoming season.
WCR Destination Rows
Once a month (weather depending), we'll take the boat out to different exotic locations to row, explore and lunch.
Our first destination was to Padanarum on June 25th
Stay tuned for news of our next Destination Row.
