WAYS TO PROUTY: Rowing
Row The Prouty takes place on Prouty Day - Saturday, July 14, 2018, from 6:30am to 12:30pm at the Dartmouth College rowing docks.
Like other Prouty events, Row The Prouty is not timed, nor is it considered a “race.” You can choose your own distance—5, 10, 15 or up to 20 miles, in an “out and back” format. Mile marker buoys mark the distances. Rowers choose their own launch time, but must be off the river by 12:30pm. Bring your own rowing shell - there is parking for trailers and cars, as well as room to store shells overnight (bring your own slings!).
Land based “Stop-And-Go” (SAG) stops, with docks, are located at approximately 4-miles and 9.5-miles, and are equipped with food, water, Port-o-Johns, Gatorade, sunscreen, band-aids and basic tools. There are two motorized Prouty Safety Launches on the river which can provide water, snacks, tools and medical supplies.
After your row, you can take the shuttle to The ProutyTM event site at the Richmond Middle School, where you can enjoy the all-day Prouty Party with other Prouty participants.
Sorry, but no paddle boats, canoes, or kayaks allowed. Bathroom facilities are available at the rowing event site, but no other facilities (showers, locker-rooms) will be available for use.
Note: the Connecticut River parallels a segment of The Prouty cycling and walking course. Rowers, cyclists, and walkers will be visible to each other as they participate!
