With a little help Rubber Duck fit her fat ass into her kayak this morning. Although she sounded like a champagne cork when attempting a water exit, she fit.
Registration is open until Thursday night at 7 PM but you better register right this minute because the cutoff of 180 boats in the race is rapidly approaching. Click here to go to the Cape Ann Rowing Club Registration page to sign up and get info.
Never entered a race before? It’s only three miles up and three miles back and then hotdogs, beer, and clam chowder await you back at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. If you don’t want to race just go to the causeway in front of Woodman’s and watch the work boats and dories start at 10 AM this Saturday and make sure you stay until noon to see Rubber Duck make it back.
As always a hat tip to all the volunteers of the Cape Ann Rowing Club who make this event a memorable start to the summer.
