Why Row?

Rowing is the one of the most graceful, mentally and physically beneficial, life-long sports. With the advent of the recreational rowing shell, it is no longer just an exclusive, collegiate or Olympic sport. With rowing clubs appearing along waterways all over the country and the world, rowing is one of the fastest growing sports. The US women have excelled in the Olympics, winning gold medals in 3 consecutive Olympics.

Adaptive rowing is also enjoyed by differently-abled athletes, and is a Paralympic sport.

Rowing requires you to be relatively physically fit and flexible. You have to be able to get in and out of a shell from the dock, or beach launch from the shore. You should be able to get back into a boat; should you flip; requiring arm strength to lift yourself into the boat. You should be able to swim and tread water.

What should I wear rowing?

It’s usually cool in the mornings, we recommend:

  • Snug-fitting dry wick shirts and tights.
  • Oars can get caught in sweatshirts or jackets with pockets.
  • Long, loose tops may get caught in seat tracks. No loose clothing!
  • No shoes in the boats, we wear socks only
  • Bright colored tight fitting clothing
  • Also, it’s a good idea to have a change of clothes in your car, just in case
  • Waterproof phone case
