BENEFITING: Rocking the Boat, Inc.

EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016

Staci Rice


Join Rocking the Boat on Saturday, September 17 for the adventure of a lifetime: a full-day,

29½ mile row around the entire island of Manhattan in traditionally built Whitehall gigs!

In keeping with tradition over the past seven years, 10-12 teams of rowers will fundraise to support Rocking the Boat’s innovative youth development programs in wooden boatbuilding, sailing, rowing, and environmental science in the South Bronx.


  • A team captain will organize each team and recruit and manage the rowers, who may be relatives, friends, or coworkers.


  • Participants  are given the option to row one, two, or all three legs, and must pledge to participate in their team’s fundraising efforts.


  • Each boat holds four rowers, an optional alternate, and a coxswain—a Rocking the Boat alumnus. A team can have minimum of four rowers, a maximum of 12.


  •  All teams, regardless of size, must raise a minimum of $20,000. Historically, most teams raise significantly more to help us meet our goal of $300,000.


  • All rowers must be affiliated with a team. If you are not already connected to a team, please contact Rocking the Boat and we will do our best to place you on a team in need of individual rowers.


  • Coxes will lead a series of practice sessions in September.


  • The event culminates with an after-row party where top fundraisers will be recognized.


  • All participants will receive: breakfast, lunch, and admission to the after-row party, lots of liquid and snacks throughout the day, a Rocking Manhattan t-shirt, and a Rocking the Boat baseball cap.


If you are interested in forming a team and have questions, please contact Jennifer Sanchez,
