Read some of our Alumni stories and see the difference that rowing Mobjack made in their lives.
My career choice can be very physically and mentally demanding but nothing has come close to my experiences at Williams Wharf. Mobjack rowing is still near and dear to my heart and I wouldn’t change a second of it even if I could.
Rowing taught me many life lessons, such as perseverance, time management, and to put forth only the highest quality of effort. Rowing pushed me to have high standards for myself, and played a key role in me now being in my second year of my doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Miami..
Are you sitting at home thinking how can I actually affect change? You may be surprised to learn that there is a program in our area that is already doing it. Between our two towns (Gloucester and Mathews) 34 percent of kids, on average, who graduate from high school go on to attend a four-year university. Mobjack Rowing Association, the rowing club that comprises our towns’ two high schools, boasts a 90 percent four-year college attendance rate. Of the remaining 10 percent, about half of those kids attended a two-year college and a quarter joined the military.

I’m hoping to give you a glimpse into the magic that Tim Ulsaker has created at Williams Wharf over the decades. It is his continual love and dedication to Williams Wharf that has changed literally hundreds of lives.

In my humble opinion, a true test of leadership is when you are not in charge of anyone. No sport prepares you for this better than rowing. I was always part of a crew in high school, meaning I did not row alone.
