Wellfleet Rowing Rendezvous

Announcing the 7th Annual
Wellfleet Rowing Rendezvous

Mayo Beach, Wellfleet, MA 02667

We are proud to announce the SeventhAnnual Wellfleet Rowing Rendezvous, to be held Saturday, September 21, 2019, at Mayo Beach, Wellfleet, 1 to 5PM.
The purpose of this free event is to promote rowing, and to be able to try and compare different boats. We will have boats to row, and you are invited to bring your boat for others to row. Last year we had 17 different boats. Boats can be launched for free from trailers at the boat ramp at the Wellfleet Marina, next to the beach, or hand launched at the Town landing right next to the commercial pier. Please bring PFD’s and an anchor for your boat. This event is FREE, but please register via email or phone if you are planning to attend. More details will be available as we get closer to the event.
Register: or phone, 508-349-2383
More info will be posted at and on the Old Wharf Facebook page.

Sponsored by: Old Wharf Dory Co., South Shore Boatworks, and S.N. Smith & Son, with special thanks to the Cape Cod Chapter, TSCA, and the Town of Wellfleet.
