The Icebreaker is our Championship race of the season. It draws 250 of the region's best youth open-water rowers - from Boston Harbor, Lake Champlain, Martha's Vineyard, Downeast Maine, New Haven and Avery Point, CT, and New York City - competing for the coveted "Key to the Harbor." The young people, from middle school through high school, race throughout the day in a series of round-robin-style heats. The day offers great opportunities to see beautiful races, athletes, and vessels up close, so come cheer young people giving everything they've got during a day of inspirational athletics and sportsmanship.

For parents who may be attending the IceBreaker:

The race area is between Seaport Blvd and Summer Street. The Necco Parking Lot is available for spectator parking.
