Let's take a moment to learn about Riverfront Recapture's Community Rowing Program. It's an incredible initiative that serves over 650 people annually and is one of New England's largest and most successful community rowing programs. From recreational to competitive classes, including opportunities to join nationally recognized racing teams, there's something for everyone, regardless of age. The program also offers Adaptive and Veterans programs, as well as youth clinics taught by passionate college coaches. Operating out of the Boathouse in Hartford's historic Riverside Park on the Connecticut River for over 25 years, this program has made a lasting impact. Remember, this event is a fundraiser, and every penny of the net proceeds will directly support the rowing program. Together, let's make a difference! We thank Empire Timing Company for providing timing services for this event.
