Community Rowing

The Masters part of our club is made up
of mostly scullers (singles and doubles 
rowers), but we do get in larger boats to
train for regattas, train new rowers and
for winter rowing.  The club has
"Community Row" every Saturday & Sunday
morning at 8:00 am (note time/day
adjustment for the hot weather). 

Last SAT July 25th at 8AM we had about
20 rowers on the water. Tim Stuart was

conducting a juniors summer rowing camp...

Thanks some much to Tim...

SAT & SUN at 8AM are a good time to get

to know other rowers... get into the  bigger
8's & 4's...

Maybe even prepare for some

upcoming regattas in the fall. 
We are shooting for having a  men's and women's 8
and or 4 at the Head of the South the 2nd weekend in NOV...

This fall we are looking into having a friendly
competition with the Augusta Rowing Club and
possibly go to another fall regatta...
If you are interested in rowing in a team boat,
for competition please contact
