The Big Row is an annual rowing trip by 18th century reenactors done with replica boats and gear.  By taking multi-day trips, we learn far more about old techniques and about history than by simple short excursions.

2017 – Kingston to Prescott – We plan to row from Kingston, Ontario on Lake Ontario to Fort Wellington, Prescott, Ontario on the Saint Lawrence River, starting on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 and arriving Friday, August 19, 2017, in time for the Loyalist Days reenactment.
