PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR MEMBERSHIPS, ESPECIALLY NEWTON AND WATERTOWN YACHT CLUBS.
Race Course: Eliot Bridge (near BB&N School) to North Beacon St. Bridge.
Race time: Noon to roughly 1pm. Might be faster, might be slower, depending on how young and/or inexperienced some of the rowers are.
the Head of the Quinnobequinn is a youth (kids 18 and under, and as young as 10 years old), in singles. This means that they are alone in the boat, steering a tricky course with obstacles to avoid, and having to execute their race strategy with no motivation or help from other rowers or a cox'n. These boats are also very tippy and require skill and concentration. All that said, this is a fantastic race with some really quality rowing and it provides great experience for these kids. We put many coaching launches on the course to keep an eye on everything and to lend a hand to kids that need it. Our goal is to give these kids the best racing experience possible.
Because of this, we ask that powerboaters (all boaters, too) avoid the race course for the duration of the race. So please plan to be below Eliot bridge PRIOR to Noon, or wait well above North Beacon St. until the last rower crosses the finish line (and they may be well back from the pack, so please be patient). We know that really impacts Watertown and Newton Yacht Clubs, and powerboaters wishing to use the powerboat ramp and we really appreciate your help and cooperation. Please adjust your plans accordingly.
We also understand that this, in some years, impacts the canoe and kayal rental, and we appreciate your willingness to work around the event. Hopefully this year, with a later date, is less of a burden on you.
Thanks everyone! It is a truly wonderful event and it could not happen without the support of the entire river community!
