Memorial Day Boat Race

Memorial Day is still a couple of months away but plans are already underway for the Annual Memorial Day Boat Race.  This year the race will be held on Memorial Day, May 28, 2018.  With all the recent storms, volunteers will be busy clearing the trees and debris out of the Mattapoisett River for the upcoming race.

 For those interested in participating in the annual Memorial Day boat race but don’t quite know where to start, there will be a boat building seminar on April 14.

From 1-3 p.m., boats will be on display, plans will be available and boat builders will be on hand to answer questions at the Rochester Fire Department.

Additionally, participants can buy and sell river racing boats at the event.
