The home for the women’s crew team, The Abe Bashara Community Boathouse, at 10,000 square feet, is the largest boathouse along the Merrimack River. Over 30,000 youths have learned to sail and row at the Lawrence-based venue. Under head coach and Boathouse staff member Tim Desrosiers, Merrimack will have top-notch boating facilities as it kicks off what should be a successful crew program.
