The Village Community Boathouse sent two crews to Elm City Challenge 2015. These crews rowed the Warrior and the Notorious GIG, and consisted of eight students from Stuyvesant High School and two from the Harbor School. Although it was originally planned for there to be three events: a distance race, a knot-tying competition and a slalom course, whereby crews would navigate through an obstacle course rudderless, the latter two were cancelled and the only event left was a 3.5 mile distance race. On the way there, the students did their best in preparing for the trip, by tying down the boats, setting up the trailer, and creating plenty of thole rings.
