    Snow Row:

    Thank You to all who raced, cheered, organized, volunteered and donated to make this another wonderful event!!!


    HLM’s signature-rowing race, the Snow Row, covers a 3 3/4 mile triangular course starting off the beach at Windmill Point, continuing around Sheep island, past the Peddocks Island day marker, and back to shore.

    Huge crowds gather on the beach beside the museum’s Windmill Point Boathouse to share in the wild, LeMans-style start, unpredictable weather, and one-of-a-kind gathering of gorgeous boats and athletes.

    Entirely within view of the Boathouse, the event is as much of a thrill for spectators as for participants.

    It is also a rare opportunity to see, up close, rowers of all ages and their stunning array of wooden pulling boats — peapods, dories, wherries, whitehalls, ocean shells, kayaks, pilot gigs, captain’s gigs, and Irish currachs.

    Youth and adult crews and rowers from all over New England, New York, and along the East Coast will join them.
