If you are an experienced sculler, welcome to an exciting new rowing experience!
We have a unique rower’s “playground” just beyond our dock, but before you can enjoy it you need to get checked out by our coaches and certified to use our equipment and facilities. For those with a good deal of sculling experience, a 1 hour check-out may be all that’s needed to orient you to our waters and ensure that you can safely handle our often changing conditions. Give us a call and talk to the staff about your experience and interest and and they will tailor the right check-out session for you.
Reservations to reserve club shells and sign up for classes can be made up to four weeks in advance using our online reservation system. Visit our 2019 Price List for more reservation and membership fees.
We currently offer a variety of Open Water and Coastal rowing shells - the mix of club boats changes with the needs of the club and the majority of our club boats are less than three years old. We use oars from Concept 2; the majority are hatchet Big Blade w/ vortex edge. We also provide (and require) a personal flotation device (PFD) for each club boat. We take pride in well maintained boats and equipment, and make boat care a part of our training. Members rinse and wipe-down all boats as they come off the water, and our staff keeps all our gear in top shape.
The usual reservation is for one hour, but members can sign up for two hours on weekdays and can wait-list for second hours on weekends. Due to the demand for shells on weekends, members should reserve weekend time to ensure availability. Shells should also be reserved on weekdays, since it helps the dock master manage the flow of boats and rowers. Reservations to reserve club shells and sign up for classes can be made up to four weeks in advance using our online reservation system.
Please call us if you are dropping in without a boat reservation or you need to cancel a same day reservation please call ahead to confirm boat availability 415.332.1091
