Icebreaker: Northeast Regional Youth Open-Water Rowing Championships

The Icebreaker Youth Open-Water Rowing Championships
Saturday, November 17, 2012

The Icebreaker draws 200 of the region’s best youth open-water rowers – from Boston Harbor, Lake Champlain, Martha’s Vineyard, Maine’s North Haven, Rockland, and Vinalhaven, New Haven and Avery Point, CT, New York City, Plymouth, and Scituate – to compete for the coveted “Key to the Harbor.” The young people, from middle school through high school, race throughout the day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in a series of round-robin-style heats, culminating with a huge nautical mile race across the bay. The day offers great opportunities to see beautiful races, athletes, and vessels up close, so come cheer young people giving everything they’ve got during a day of inspirational athletics and sportsmanship.
