Brewster crew began in 1989 as a recreational program. Since then, it has evolved into a multi-level competitive program. Because of school size, Brewster primarily races fours. The goal of our program is to introduce girls to the sport of crew and to provide a competitive opportunity for girls to develop team sportsmanship, character and esprit de corps.
Spring crew is a season of 1500-meter sprint regattas and Brewster races 4's against New England public and private schools. For the spring racing season boats are lined up in lanes to compete bow to bow, and crews know exactly how they're doing in relation to their competitors. The race usually lasts anywhere from 6 to 10 minutes depending on the prevailing weather conditions. It is a fast-paced race season with lots of action and intensity. Brewster competes in major regattas such as the Founder's Day Regatta and toward the end of the spring season Brewster hosts its own regatta, the Northern New England Championships.
