Crunch Time

The International Dory Elimination Races are on Saturday morning.

Dory races return

The second leg of the 2019 International Dory Races begins Saturday with elimination races at Niles Beach (8:30 a.m.). While dory tandems competed for the chance to race against rowers from the Lunenburg, Nova Scotia at the Jodrey State Fish Pier in June, they will be competing for a chance to row in Lunenburg this weekend.

On Saturday, rowers from the Men's, Women's, Mixed Doubles, Master's Over 50 and Junior Divisions will compete for a spot in the Lunenburg races, which take part Saturday, August 17.

The Gloucester rowers won the majority of the races this past June, but the Lunenburg rowers have a strong track record on their home course as they took the majority of the races there last August.
