Learn to Row

If you have never rowed before, the first step is to sign up for our Learn to Row class. This will teach basic form and technique.

Spending Time on the Water

The historic Cape Fear River is as rich in culture as it is in resources and diverse wildlife. Rowing is a great way to learn and appreciate its beauty.

Train and Compete

Our competition team is racing in regattas all up and down the east coast and has some great success. Come train and join the team.

Don't know how to row?
