    CMI’s Signature Rowing Event
    Sunday, September 17th, 2017
    Sandy Beach
    345 Atlantic Avenue, Cohasset, MA

    Race Description. The Minot’s Light Roundabout is a 4.2 mile open water rowing event open to all sea-worthy, oar-powered craft. Participants will row in the open ocean waters to Minot’s Light, and conditions can vary dramatically. Occasionally the water can be very rough, with strong winds and waves. We will have powerboats on the course to monitor checkpoints, but we do not provide boat escorts — you should expect to be out of their sight and fully independent during the race. We will not have a rain date. In the case of adverse weather conditions or fog we may use an alternate course or call off the race. See the race course and the race chart for more details. Take a look at the video from the 2012 race, courtesy of 143tv!
    Safety. Each participant must carry or wear a USCG-approved PFD (life jacket), and each participant must carry an attention-getting noisemaker, such as a whistle on a lanyard or a horn. Crews rowing single and double Aldens, kayaks, surfskis, canoes, and similar boats must wear life jackets.
