Community wellness through rowing


Masters Recreational ("adult rec") rowing focuses largely on providing members a solid aerobic workout, honing rowing technique, and creating a positive social environment with other rowers. Limited time is devoted toward competition at regattas. Rowers unable to participate in the competitive program but wishing to race may consider forming independent crews with other certified rowers.
