Derryfield has hosted an active and competitive rowing program for over 20 years. The sport encompasses two seasons. In the fall, the focus is on technique and conditioning in preparation for the"head" race season of three-mile rows against the clock. Novices are introduced to the sport, while experienced rowers are assembled into competitive crews. The fall program includes three regattas, the Textile Regatta, the New Hampshire Championships, and the Head of the Fish.
