Derby sweeps and sculls / JUNE 2020

Derby Sweeps and Sculls is a popular early season sprint race for masters on the Housatonic river. The course is a straight 1,000 meters, running upstream (north). All boats launch from the beach at Indian Well State Park in Shelton, Connecticut. Around thirty clubs compete each year and the atmosphere is lively but relaxed—the perfect way to start the summer.

Thank you to all of our competitors for another great year!
