HLM's 32nd Annual Head of the Weir River Race features as many as 60 boats jockey for position racing out the narrow estuary and onto open water, traveling from West Corner (on the Hingham/ Hull/ Cohasset line), past Bumpkin Island, across Hull Bay, to the museum's Windmill Point Boathouse at Hull Gut. A highly-contested 5 1/2 miler, the Weir draws coxed youth and adult rowers in gigs, single and double livery and workboats, currachs, and ocean shells, as well as experienced kayakers.
Dharma Voyage will be sending three boats this year, Mariner, Spirit, and Voyager. In addition, Jon Aborn will part of a crew racing Finona.
Refresher class is open to all practitioners. Due to space constraints, class will be capped at 25 participants. Please email Myrna to confirm your attendance as soon as you can.
Parking Note: A children’s Art Class at the Grange will end around 12:30 PM; they will make an effort to clear out before our session start so there should be sufficient parking space.
