The ethic of the nineteenth century surfmen and lifesavers whose stories are told in the Hull Lifesaving Museum, is perpetuated through the Open Water Rowing Program where seamanship, teamwork, and open-boat voyaging skills are instilled in today's youth and adult rowers who row for recreation and sometimes to compete against other crews in regional races.
The best mental health activity in Greater Boston can be found at Windmill Point, in Hull and the Boston Rowing Center at Fort Point Channel in Boston. As with all of the on the water programs, we row in Whitehall Fours, Pilot Gigs, and barges, choosing a boat each outing to match the crew that shows up on the beach. Learn more.
The Outer Harbor is out playground in this year-round after school program serving middle and high school aged students on the South Shore. Participants come to Windmill Point, Hull to embark on voyages of discovery, every day choosing a different island or shoreline to explore, a different boat to row, a new way to know their friends.
