Essex River Race, this Saturday, May 19th

A crowded schedule of things to do this coming weekend what with the Motif #1 Day going full bore in Rockport. Art, music, food, all day. To get the most out of the day you could check out The Essex River Race sponsored by (The Cape Ann Rowing Club) bright and early. The race heats start at 9:30 AM. (If you are racing, get to the captain’s meeting at 9 AM at the Essex Ship Building Museum.)

The Essex River Race is open to all seaworthy human or rubbery waterfowl-powered rowing and paddle boats. Participants’ crafts usually include Banks dories, fixed seat singles, doubles, multi-oars with cox, multi-oars without cox, sliding seat singles & doubles, single & double touring kayaks, surfskis.

Still time to enter. Only 27 bucks and you get a T-Shirt and a good start to the season.
