Rowing is a great sport for adults of all ages that provides a full-body workout and the opportunity to meet new people and have fun in a team-oriented activity. Morning and evening classes are available and meet twice-a-week in 4-week sessions.
Classes are offered each summer during June and July. Registration for the 2015 season are now closed.

GCRA Brings Home Hardware from Master’s Nationals 2014
Twelve rowers/scullers from GCRA traveled to Grand Rapids Michigan to participate in the US Rowing Master’s National Regatta, August 14-17, and each brought back at least one medal. There were 28 GCRA entries in 23 different events. The group brought back 3 gold medals (Mixed C 2x, W Club F 4x, Mixed A 4x), 2 silver medals (M Hwt A 2x, M Lwt C 2x) and 5 bronze medals (Mixed A 2x in a photo finish, M Hwt A 2x, Mixed C 4x, M Lwt C 1x, and W open B 1x), which placed the club in the top third of clubs in efficiency (17/58). Efficiency is calculated as points/competitor for clubs that bring at least three competitors and excludes composite boats. Although it was a bit windy, the moderate temperatures and low humidity made for very comfortable racing conditions. Shown below are Mark, Laurel, Kristi and James (aka GoGo and the Gays) celebrating their win in the Mixed A 4x.
