MBCA Kayak Race
The “MBC-A 600 – Rowing Regatta” is held annually in connection with the MBC Regatta.
The rowing race is approximately 600 yards through Bolles Harbor, with spectators on shore and boats. The free rowing/race is open to members and guests who bring kayaks, canoes, dinghies, and other human-powered watercraft. All boats are launched from nearby Angler’s Fish Camp.
Monroe Boat Club has a rich history of boating. In 1878, MBC rowers won 1st place in the world-famous Henley Royal Regatta in Henley-on-Thames, England. Later, in 1902, pleasure boating became popular, and in the 1950s sail boating races and programs for adults and youth began.
