Regional Rowing Teams travel to “Snow Row”. Vergennes takes first place.

On Saturday March 12th, four youth teams, two from Vergennes middle and high school, one from Mount Abraham Union middle and  high school and one from Burlington high school traveled to Hull Massachusetts as part of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s Champlain Longboats program to participate in the Snow Row, a 3 ½ mile rowing race sponsored by the Hull Lifesaving Museum. Thirty eight rowing gigs from around New England participated on this blustery late winter day. Winds were out of the northwest at 15-20 knots.

Vergennes, rowing Harvest Moon placed 1st with a time of 41 minutes 44 seconds in the youth pro six-oared division and were the fourth boat over the finish line. Vergennes second crew, rowing Osprey finished 3rd in the youth amateur six-oared division with a time of 1 hour and 3 seconds.

Burlington High School rowing WindRose finished 1st in the mixed youth/adult six-oared division (they had to replace a rower at the last minute with an adult) with a time of 46 minutes and 38 seconds.

Mt Abraham Union middle and high school rowing American Shad finished 4th in the youth amateur four-oared division with a time of 1 hour and 19 minutes.

This was a challenging and demanding race. All of the Vermont teams deserve accolades for rowing so well.
