Rowing the Essex River

Essex, Massachusetts, is a New England town on the Essex River, which empties into the Atlantic. The annual Essex River Race starts and finishes in town, circumnavigating Cross Island in Essex Bay, a six mile run out the estuary to the ocean and back.

Rowing for pleasure, a blog by Chris Partridge documents the 2009 event with photos by David Jones.

Looks like a lot of fun to me. Maybe I'll have to take Paku, the three station rowing skiff, out east next year for the festivities!
