Our 10th Anniversary Race was a year to remember

Hundreds of community members and Fogo Island visitors came to cheer on the rowers at the 10th Anniversary of our Great Fogo Island Punt Race.

It was a gorgeous day, though a stiff wind in the morning threatened to significantly delay the start time. It died down just enough to allow the rowers out by 11:00am, and they worked hard to complete the race!

We were delighted to have the participants of the Canada C3 Expedition join us for the day, and even enter a rower of their own — Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden, who rowed with longtime Punt Race champion Donna Connors.

Members of popular band Middle Tickle played on the wharf, and Nicole’s Cafe served their delicious food and Growler’s Ice Cream. Thank you to all who made the day as wonderful as it was, especially our tireless volunteers!
