DescriptionWashington College broke ground on the $5 million Hodson Boathouse on September 13th, 2017. The College’s sailing and rowing teams, as well as other students, faculty, and community members look forward to the striking new facility opening its doors next spring. The groundbreaking event included representatives of the Hodson Trust, which donated $2.5 million to the project, as well as Regis de Ramel ’97, a member of the College’s Board of Visitors and Governors and crew team alumnus, who made a $1 million gift. These, in addition to support from other College trustees and donors, will make possible the new facility replacing the Truslow Boathouse, which will continue to store shells and rigging. Located next to the Lelia Hynson Pavilion, the Hodson Boathouse will house workout equipment, locker rooms, and a state-of-the-art tank room with a 16-station, 25-by-54-foot rowing tank in which rowing team crewmembers can perfect their sweep technique and practice when the weather is too cold or inclement for on-the-water training. A wraparound deck will offer expansive views of the river.
