Cow Island and More

Deep into the dog days of summer, this last Saturday in July promises to be a hot one. I like the way the Cow Island Classic Maine State Championship provides a choice with in race course length today onthe Androscoggin River. What you may not know about Maine is that while it is further North, New England humidity is really steamy. My choice in this competition would be the 1000m race instead of the 5000m. Then again, the 500mmad dash in Jersey on Overpeck Lake sounds even better.

In Brunswick, Maine the Cow Island Classic Maine State Championship for Master, Open, Collegiate Women, High School and Junior entries will be held today hosted by Maine Rowing Association and Merrymeeting  Community Rowing. There will be 202 entries from 15 clubs competing on either a 5000m loop race or 1000m sprint race on Androscoggin River.
