This weekend the Essex River Race will take over the shoreline and waters near Ipswich, Massachusetts. And our TotalBoat Ambassador, Richard Honan, will be front and center with his beautiful, home built Adirondack Guide Boat.
After months of building and gallons of TotalBoat paints and epoxies, Richard is read to take his beautiful boat to the river. Check out the info below about the race and Richard’s boatbuilding page on TotalBoat Shop.
The Essex River Race is a 5.5+ mile open water event from the Essex River at Route 133 in Essex, out behind the barrier beaches of Ipswich and back. Participants row or paddle small boats through one of the most scenic tidal areas in New England. Occasionally the water can be very rough, with strong winds and currents. As with all on-water activities in such conditions, safety should be the first concern of all participants and organizers. The orderly, safe and sportsmanlike conduct of this event is your personal responsibility, and is essential to guaranteeing the future of the Essex River Race.
