My son, Finn, started rowing with the Maritime Gloucester Gig Rowers this summer. When the summer session was over they began to gear up for the annual Gloucester Harbor Race that took place last weekend. The junior heat only consisted of three boats and then a morning of adult races took place immediately following. It was fun to see the clubs that made appearances from various locations. I saw boats from the South Shore, Lake Champlain, and many New England destinations. The race course took them from Niles Beach to the Dog Bar Breakwater and back.
