Windmill Point Boathouse

HLM's signature-rowing race, the Snow Row, the 41st Annual Snow Row is a celebration of traditional fixed seat boats and rowers. The race covers a 3.75 mile triangular course starting off the beach at Windmill Point, continuing around Sheep Island, past the Peddocks Island day marker, and back to shore. The race is unique for its incredible LeMans-style start and its one-of-a-kind gathering of boats and athletes.

Spectators are encouraged to watch the race either from the Windmill Point Boathouse or beach. A great spectacle, the event is a much of a thrill for spectators as for participants. It is also a rare opportunity to see, a stunning array of wooden pulling boats -- peapods, dories, wherries, whitehalls, pilot gigs, captain's gigs, and Irish currachs. Participants include experienced youth and adult crews and rowers from all over New England, New York, and along the East Coast.
