Blackburn Challenge Race Saturday July 13th
Hello All Rowers,
This Saturday July 13th is the annual Blackburn Challenge Race around Cape Ann. This is a 22 plus mile rowing race. We will be having four of the IDRC race boats and two practice boat in the event. The event starts at 8 AM in the Annisquam river. The racers travel up the river towards the Ipswich bay, around Halibut Point, through Straitsmouth, along long and good harbor beaches, past eastern point light house and finishes at the Greasy Pole at Pavilion beach. If you have free time make your way to the water around Cape Ann to cheer on our racers.
With this said the four race boats and two practice boats will not be available Saturday until after 2 pm. Some of the race boats will be moved Friday afternoon. If there is a race boat at the dock in the morning please do not take it for a row. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause anyone. Thank you very much for your cooperation on this day.
Best of Luck to the racers
