PHOTOS: Concord Crew practices on the Merrimack River

  • Students at area high schools make up the Concord Crew team that practice on the Merrimack River six days a week, launching from the docks near the Kiwanis Riverfront Park in Concord. The program, which is nearly year-round, racing in the Fall and the Spring, is not affiliated with the school district, therefore they raise their own money for equipment and operating costs. The rowers will compete in the Head of the Charles in Boston and in Saratoga Springs, New York near the end of October.<br/>(JOHN TULLY / Monitor staff)
