2nd Annual Cranberry Sprints Celebrates 30th Years of Rowing on Cape Cod!

We’re celebrating 30 years of rowing on the Cape!

Please join us for an alumni fun row on September 23, after you've enjoyed our celebration Saturday, September 22nd at Cape Cod Beer.  Both events will help to support the future of youth rowing on Cape Cod.

Sunday morning’s Cranberry Sprints will be a fun opportunity to get back on the water including a 500 meter stake race for those who want to go for the gold! Not to worry, for those who haven’t been on the water for a while there will be a wide variety of boats to splash around in.

8am -12 noon, Sunday, September 23 at the town beach on Long Pond Drive in Harwich (between exits 10 and 11). Children and other family members are welcome!

We need  your help to create a slideshow of our rowing antics, races, adventures, and memories! Please share your photos in this folder so that we can include them.

We’d really love to see you at this event, but if you are unable to attend your financial support would be much appreciated. Please use the RSVP to indicate that you would like to be included as we launch our next fundraising campaign.

Please RSVP by September 15!

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