Open Rows are designed to accommodate rowers who would like to row at different times with crews that vary from one scheduled row to the next.  Please contact the boatsteerer directly for the scheduled row that you would like to participate in (click the Boatsteerer's name to send an email).

If you are new to Whaling City Rowing, or have not rowed in some time, the boatsteerer will do his/her best to get you in for a row. for information about what to wear and/or bring, click on ROW WITH US or FAQEarly signups are appreciated!

Please keep in mind that row-times are also dependant on weather conditions. It's always best to double check with your boatsteerer to make sure that the row is on.
