Director Statement

In the summer of 2018 I came back to pilot gig rowing, after a long hiatus. I rejoined "Come Boating," a community organization in Belfast, Maine focused on educational boating programs. I also started racing. In "Gloucester Race," through POV training and race footage and still imagery, I've attempted to capture some of the energy, camaraderie and spirit shared between a group of women, ranging in age and experience level, in a thrilling experience of competitive rowing.
