If you think skimming aerodynamically over the water under your own muscle power would be a blast, then rowing is for you.  It’s all balance, timing and teamwork.  Slipping into a boat and pulling solo or with friends develops muscle power, endurance and great friendships.  Rowing is a fun way to get to know yourself and others.Ray Lambert (2006)

The program is built around two elements:

  • Learn to Row – Starts early in June, Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00 – 7:30 pm.  Meet at the DRYTC BBQ pit.
  • Regular Rowing – Weather permitting, June to October, at 6:30 pm, Monday to Thursday.  Meet at the DRYTC BBQ pit. Fridays are optional, and weekend rowing can be arranged if interested.

There are 6 boats – one quad scull (4-person sculling shell), one straight four (4-person sweep shell), and four double sculls (2-person sculling shells).

Membership is required for all adult and student rowing activities (see Registration Form 1).
