COVID-19 Response

We hope that you are safe during these uncertain times! For everyone’s health and safety, we’ve had to put a lot of things on hold this past spring. However, during this hiatus we’ve also been working out ways that we could still get you on the water in a safe manner. And we can still get you out in a 1-person boat (or a 2-person boat if from the same household)!

How is that possible? Rowing equipment is rather long. Our shortest 1-person boat is 25’ and the oars you would be using are 9’ long. The closest anyone else can get to you is a very safe distance.


Will I have all my own equipment? Yes, it means that you will have all of your own equipment during a session. This means your own boat, your own oars, and all other equipment you may need for that lesson. You won’t be touching/sharing any equipment with anyone else. We will not be providing any water, snacks, or masks and encourage you to bring your own.

What if I can’t lift/carry my boat all on my own? You won’t need to! A boat can be carried by 2 people on their shoulders at the very ends of the bow/stern. As our shortest 1-person boat is 25’ long, you’ll be at least 24’ away from your coach or one of our volunteers during that time.

What are you doing to minimize cross-contamination? In addition to touching your equipment as little as possible, your coach and our volunteers will set all of your equipment out in individual groups and sanitize it before each session. After a session, it will all be sanitized before it is put away. In order to achieve this, we have medical-grade anti-viral/bacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, nitrile gloves, and are in the process of acquiring a non-contact thermometer.

Thank you again for your patience in the midst of a pandemic! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Learn to Scull

This class is for new or experienced sweep rowers who want to learn to scull (row with two oars rather than one). Participants will start in small boats with other rowers as they learn to master sculling. By the end of the class, they will be able to take out a 1-person or 2-person boat. This class will help prepare you to take out a boat on your own without the supervision of a coach.
