The Masters Men’s team consists of a core of 12-15 rowers plus a few dedicated coxswains. We race eights, fours, and pairs. Many of us also race as scullers, and some of the Club’s top scullers join us for sweep events. Ranging in age from 23 to 72, we can put together competitive boats in almost any age category and class of boats.
Coached practice is MWF from 5:30-7:00 a.m. plus Saturday 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. The training program includes erg workouts, weights, and additional rowing other days of the week. The season runs from the end of March through October, though we are on the water later in the fall until the river freezes. We are a competitive group that enjoys rowing and racing but we also recognize the importance of rowing-life balance. Members typically row together at least 2-3 times per week with some significantly more.
Our top priorities are Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Masters Regional Championships, Royal Canadian Henley, and the Head of the Charles for which we have three guaranteed entries and at least 16 seats to fill. We have an active schedule of racing that allows team members at all levels to participate. Elite members of the team often join other clubs to race composite at some regattas.
The program welcomes new members. Applicants should be fit, with good technical skills and a willingness to work hard. You may join us for a two-week try-out period before starting the Club application process. Skilled coxswains are also welcome.
