An informal group of scullers meets most Saturday and Sunday mornings around 7 a.m. (or as soon as it starts getting light).

In addition, we have added a Saturday morning rowing opportunity on June 9 from  9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. This program is for recreational and novice rowers and is ideal for recent Learn to Row grads. Each practice will focus on technique and improving sculling skills. To participate, log in to iCrew, join the ‘MastersSculling2018’ team and toggle in. If you are not already a member of another rowing group you can participate in this program with a punch card.
