Provincetown Hosting Weekend Rowing Event

provincetown harborPROVINCETOWN – Dozens of rowers will take to the waters off Provincetown this weekend for a coastal rowing event.

The 2016 Coastal Rowing Regatta will be held Saturday, launching and ending from the End End Harbor. The 8K event will be held in the open waters off P’Town.

The town is the second U.S. destination to host the competition, following its debut last year in Pensacola, Florida.

“We are excited about hosting this growing sporting event,” said Tony Fuccillo, Provincetown Director of Tourism. “Rowing competitions often take place on the West Coast and this event will now be the first of its kind in the Northeast. We believe it will be a huge success and will encourage the Regatta to return in future years.”

The Rowing Regatta is open to single and double slide-seat boats.

Mixed doubles and masters-level racing will be included.

FISA-approved boats will be available for participants to try.
