Buzzards Bay Rowing Club
The boats of the BBRC are kept on the Fairhaven side of New Bedford Harbor. The BBBRC rows primarily in the New Bedford inner harbor area of the Acushnet River. In the middle of the Acushnet River is the privately owned Crow?s Island. Carl Pimental has lived in a redbrick house on Crow Island in the middle of the river for 20 years. During high tide, we are able to row completely around Palmers Island Lighthouse. When there are windy and choppy seas, we try to row in a more protected area by rowing under the New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge and up into the more protected areas of the Acushnet River or along the "zipper" area along side Popes Island Marina. When the water is calm and we have more time, we sometimes row outside the gates of the New Bedford Hurricane Barrier to the Butler Flats Lighthouse and then back again. And when we want to train for the annual whaleboat races in New Bedford Harbor, we race right off of New Bedford State Pier and row the race course that takes us by the New Bedford Lightship. Acushnet River, c.15 mi/24 km long, SE Mass.; rises in SW Plymouth co.; flows South, past Acushnet, to Buzzards Bay between Fairhaven and New Bedford. Lower course is wide estuary.
