2016 Fundraising


FHN Rowing has increased in popularity as a varsity club sport.  Our rapid growth and continued team success has made it necessary to begin the purchase of a new boat.  These Vespoli racing shells, riggers, cox boxes, shoes and oars are very expensive to acquire.


 We purchase them with great care, looking for affordability and high performance that will allow our varsity rowers to compete in local, state, and national regattas.

We appreciate your contribution to the acquisition of our next boat.
