International Dory Races Reception

Tonight we are celebrating the return of the Canadian dory racers representing the Lunenburg, Nova Scotia area at the ‘Canadian Welcome Reception’ at the St. Peter’s Club in Gloucester.

For more than 60 years rowers from Gloucester have competed with their Canadian counterparts in the International Dory Races. Dory boats are heavy and take great physical stamina to move with speed – perfect then to test the best of two harbor communities on the Atlantic maritime.

This Saturday, come to Gloucester's Inner Harbor, next to the Jodrey State Fish Pier, and cheer on these competitors as they race from 10 AM to Noon in exciting head-to-head matches in Men's, Women's, Master's, Mixed Doubles and Junior Divisions. This is a fun and family friendly event. See you there.

Each year in the Spring Canadian rowers are hosted in a competition in Gloucester and in the fall Gloucester rowers venture to Canada for a competition in Lunenburg.
