Come Boating! Belfast’s Community Boating Organization and the Belfast Free Library are teaming up once again to offer the Winter Adventure Series. This year the series of three evening programs about adventures on the water will be offered virtually.
The first program, on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at 6:30 p.m., will feature a presentation with Nicolle Littrell, Belfast, Maine’s DoryWoman.
Littrell is an avid rower and coxswain rowing in the six person Cornish Pilot Gigs with Come Boating in Belfast. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, when all rowing was canceled Littrell took a leap and bought her own boat, a 19.5 foot Swampscott dory, Sorciere. She rowed throughout the first year of the pandemic, no matter the weather, and in June of 2021 became a licensed Maine Guide and turned her passion for rowing into a unique new business, DoryWoman Rowing offering rowing lessons, guided tours and specialty rows in her dory boat.
Littrell has documented her experience in photos and videos, which she will present at this program.
To register for the Zoom to this program please go to belfastlibrary.org/virtual-programs.
The Winter Adventure Series continues Tuesday, February 15, with a presentation by Larry Rosenfeld, executive director of Team Adventure Educational Foundation; and on Tuesday, March 15, JB Turner will give a presentation on ”The History of Front Street Shipyard”.
