Queen of Hearts Dory Club will be holding the 12th Annual International Iron Man Dory Race on Sept. 18, starting at 6 a.m. from the western side of the Cape Sable Island Causeway.
The 24.67-mile course circumnavigates Cape Sable Island and challenges the rowers' skills and endurance even on a fine day --not considering the extra challenges that foul weather can provide.
Participants who require a chase boat are asked to make arrangements or let the club know before the event. Call Rob or Nicole at 745-1428.
Queen of Hearts dory club was formed in 1997 to provide recreational dory rowing opportunities in Shelburne County and to promote the tradition of dory rowing and racing.
Throughout the summer the club has been inviting locals and tourists to enjoy a "Fun Night of Rowing" every Tuesday night starting at 6pm at the Causeway.
