SPRING KICK-OFF PARTY

Our season kick-off party is held in early Spring. This year it will be on Friday, April 12th, 2019 at the Valley Top Tavern in Dartmouth at 6:00pm (cocktails at 5:30pm). 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 Padanaram on June 25th

 

August 7th...We teamed up with MBOWR to row Sconticut Neck and West Island. We went around the island, had lunch on the beach and a swim before rowing back for home. We're looking forward to more rows with MBOWR.

Stay tuned for news of our next Destination Row.

 

FULL MOON ROWS

Full moon rows are offered during the spring, summer and fall months of the year, weather permitting. Boarding times vary depending on the month, but generally are within one half-hour after sunset. We return to the dock about 8:30 - 8:45 PM. More precise timelines are announced with each Full Moon Row below. Boats are steered by qualified WCR Boatsteerers.

FALL POTLUCK DINNER
