This is the World Indoor Rowing Championships/US Rowing Indoor National Championships event held at Boston University on Sunday, March 1.  Categories are for youth and adults by age, gender and weight class.  

For youth rowers, if you are at least 12 but not yet 14 on race day there is a Youth Category event in which you attempt to get as many meters as possible in four minutes for boys and girls. If you are 14 and older, you may enter the U15 (under 15) or U17 (under 17) category where you do 2000 meters as fast as possible and kids are divided into boys and girls, and lightweight and heavyweight divisions.

We would like it if you signed up for this event by February 1st- the cost is $35.  Late registration is more and there is a cut off date of February 6th.   

It is an exciting, challenging event and we encourage all our student rowers to reach out to us if you wish to first talk it over with us before registering.  All others please get your registrations in!

Improve your technique and fitness level with these coached training sessions.  Whether as an individual or a crew goal, or if you have your eye on future destination row or race, this is a class for you.  

Karen has been coaching youth and adult athletes at Cohasset Maritime Institute since 2015.  Prior to joining CMI, Karen coached at Duxbury Bay Maritime School and at the Hingham Maritime Institute. Karen is also certified as a Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Instructor, and has trained rowers at all levels.  Karen works with her erg students to meet their individual goals, whether that is competitive training or overall health and fitness.   Not only does Karen train rowers for the exciting -yet grueling- C.R.A.S.H. B's Indoor Rowing Competition, but she has also taken on this competition as well as others herself.  If interested, this year the C.R.A.S.H. B Sprints will be held on Sunday March 1st in Boston and they will be hosting the WORLD Indoor Championships.  This should be an exciting day!

41st Annual Snow Row
March 14, 2020 


Registration: 9 - 11:00 AM
Coxswains' Meeting:  11:15 AM
Race Start:  Noon
Windmill Point Boathouse
185 Main St., Hull, MA


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.
