Learn To Row

Coming In The Spring

FREE Learn-to-Row
is offered 1st and 3rd Saturday morning
of the month at 10:00 at the boathouse.  
The general public is invited to row
3 different time before deciding
whether to join the club.
Please click here to email
Martin Shaffer for details you
need to know before
the Learn-to-Row session.

No experience is necessary. 
You are never too old to
learn how to row! Our oldest

member is in his 80's.

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
morning at 8:00 am (note time/day
adjustment for the hot weather).  
Other Community Rowing times
should be developing as the weather
and longer sunlight hours come
closer to spring....see "Weekly Rowing Schedule"

A group is getting together on
Sunday mornings at 8:00 am for
sweep rowing.  Those times would be
great times to get team boats together
and maybe even prepare for some
upcoming regattas.  If you are interested
in rowing in a team boat,
for recreation or for competition,
please contact Mark Conrardy by

Northern Colleges and High Schools Visit for Training

Rowing crews that have done winter and spring training in Columbia include the University of Rhode Island, Georgetown, Michigan and Vassar.

Collegiate Crew

Carolina Crew Club at USC has been conducting land training during the last academic year.  They have had two outings on the Broad River, and we look forward to their rowing regularly on the river in the fall.  Perhaps we'll even have some of the graduates from our Youth Rowing on the team.   Here is the Link to their Facebook Page, if you are interested, just send a request to join!
