Rowing is Harbor School’s longest running extracurricular activity, and is made possible in part through a collaborative partnership with the Village Community Boathouse, located at Pier 40 on the Hudson River. Through rowing, students learn the skills of navigation, managing tides and currents, small-boat handling, on-water safety, teamwork, and leadership. Students row crew-style in fixed-seat, traditionally-built wooden Whitehall Gigs.
Rowing is open to all students who are interested in being on the water. Students also have seasonal opportunities to participate in competitive regional rowing events.
