Join Cape Fear River Rowing Club

Celebrating more than 30 years on the Cape Fear

Joining CFRRC is a great way to learn a new skill in one of the world’s classic sports while also training, exercising and appreciating one of our area’s most beautiful natural resources.

Don’t know how to row?

If you have never rowed before, you must take our Learn to Row class before joining the club. This will introduce you to the proper technique in both sweep rowing (one oar per person) and sculling (two oars per person).
