ROWERS MUST PASS COMPETENCY CHECKLIST TO SIGN OUT EQUIPMENT (SEE LIST BELOW)
Please Note: Please check availability prior to taking out sculling boats. If you are interested in sculling you should reserve your equipment on the calendar provided below. We have limited singles and doubles and we want to make sure that no one is left empty handed. It is also recommended that sweep boat programs sign out boats to help keep things running smoothly at the boathouse.
- All boats must be reserved on the calendar below.
- Scullers are required to wear a life jacket between October 1 – May 31st.
- Scullers should be respectful and give all members an opportunity to book boats as needed. (Example: please don’t block a boat off the entire summer calendar)
