It’s athletic fun in a beautiful setting on the Connecticut River, right in the middle of Hartford — in very special boats.
What crew members do
Participate in two short practice sessions August 3 and August 10, late afternoon, on the river in Hartford. And commit to race day, Saturday, August 20, early morning till about 4 pm.
Pull together with more than a dozen crewmates to power the boat to the finish in several heats throughout the day. An exhilarating experience, with down time between heats.
