Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location

Celebrate the return of the light at the Winter Solstice out on the water with this special seasonal row. We'll row out into Belfast Bay in the dory boat Sorciere, light some candles, reflect on the light and dark of this season and toast the day with some hot tea! Candles and tea provided. The Solstice Row will happen on the day of the Winter Solstice, December 21. There will be three opportunities to row on this day: 9am, 11am and 3pm. This row is for individuals, pairs and trios, ages 12 and up. This row may include a mixed group of people and can also be booked as a private group. Lifejackets are required to be worn in the boat and on the docks. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own, please bring this. Temps can be quite cold this time of year and the wind nippy. Please dress appropriately for the weather: layers, wind-resistant outerwear, hat, gloves and footwear that will keep you warm and dry. The Solstice Row is weather dependent. DWR will keep you apprised of any changes in the schedule. Here's to the light!
