Recreational rowers and Lifeguard rowers of all ages will gather at Beaton Boat Yard in Brick, NJ to experience the competition, camaraderie and wide array of unique craft in what is New Jersey’s largest surfboat rowing event. Viking Promotions’ signature event, the New Jersey State Rowing Championships, covers 7 miles of the open waters of Barnegat Bay, passing through 14 beach communities from the Mantoloking Bridge to Seaside Heights. This is a rare opportunity to see not only many of our areas top lifeguards and competitive rowers, but a wide assortment of surf-rescue boats, dories, Jersey skiffs, wherries, pulling boats, and custom rowing craft. This 4th Annual race, with 12 boat classes, 5 age groups and 5 rowing combinations, attracts top national competitors from New York to Florida. An event raffle will benefit for the Toms River Seaport Society and Maritime Museum, a non-profit association that houses, restores, and maintains wooden boats as part of New Jersey history. More information about the event including pictures, registration forms, course descriptions, and rules can be found at or by calling 732-237-0576.
