Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location

February 24-26 is the ICE FEST in Belfast, Maine! DoryWoman Rowing is no stranger to ice and will offer Ice Rows as part of this special weekend! We'll seek out and observe ice in Belfast Harbor and/or up the Passagassawakeag River in the dory boat Sorciere. There is a wide variety of ice in the winter in this watershed, originating from both ends of the tidal waterway. This can include river ice floes and bergy chunks, as well as ocean skim ice and slush! We'll also be on the lookout for wildlife that live here in the winter season, including loons, buffleheads and a variety of ducks, eagles and seals. Depending on your interest and weather conditions, you may be able to try rowing! The Ice Row can be booked privately for 2-3 people or as a mixed group of individuals. Hot tea and a treat will served to compliment your row! Total on the water time for the row will be an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes and can include going out into the bay or upriver, depending on weather conditions, tide and what the ice is doing! We'll stay close to shore. Your row begins with a safety talk, reviewing the different parts of the boat, going over rowing commands and getting seated properly and comfortably. Lifejackets (PFDs) are required to be worn on the dock and in the boat. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own PFD, please bring it. Dress appropriately for the weather (Layers!). Temperatures are cold this time of year and the wind can be brisk. Wear comfortable synthetic, silk or wool clothing clothing, insulated, wind resistant outerwear, a hat and gloves and footwear that will keep you warm and dry. Bring water to stay hydrated. WEATHER AND DWR CANCELLATION POLICY: Safety is DWR's top priority. Rows are weather dependent. DWR will go out in a variety of weather conditions, including light to moderate wind, some chop or swell, fog, rain and snow. DWR's client cancellation policy applies--please review. Look forward to rowing with you!
