New York Harbor School, Stuyvesant High School, Village Community Boathouse and the Warren Rhode Island Whirley Gigs joined forces to field three crews in the 47th annual Snow Row held by the Hull Lifesaving Museum. 86 human powered boats in 25 different categories finished the 3.5 mile open water race with times ranging from 30:39 for a surfski single to 53:49 for a coxed-4 with a mixed crew of youth and adults. Lady Moody, Don Betts’ Stretch Gunning Dory manned by a mixed crew of New Yorkers and Rhode Islanders came first in the category of Coxed-4, Amateur Adults. (Amateur is defined as never having rowed together prior to the race.) Stuyvesant High School rowing VCB’s Stretch Gunning Dory Warrior, lost an oar in a run-in with another boat as they made the turn around the island. However, they made it over the finish line with a respectable 51:12. NY Harbor School won in their category with a time of 42:43. Sound School’s Stretch Gunning Dory, First Constitution, the boat VCB still wants to beat, rowed by a professional youth crew, finished the race in 35:37.
