The Courtney Cup

An ongoing rowing competition inspired by Courtney Chaplin’s love of boating and rowing.

In summer evenings on Islesford, Courtney could often be found rowing between the Cranberry Isles with his three children, fishing, exploring, and practicing together in their two-station Whitehull, “Lightning.” Courtney was one of the biggest supporters of Boatworks’ Row-a-Thon events, helping to plan the course and practicing for hours in preparation. He believed in the value of traditional skills, and the community that can be built around them. He was also an incredible rower and fierce competitor who wanted to win a race around the island. The Courtney Cup is inspired by his enthusiastic spirit and love for all things on the water.

New for 2023: The 2 teams with the fastest times will race LIVE head-to-head on the morning of the boat launch!
