“There is nothing better than starting your day on the water with friends.”
The Club has equipment designed for the full range of rowing abilities, from stable recreational to sleek racing shells. Coaches and experienced rowers help new rowers progress and, as they gain experience, they can move into faster, sleeker boats. Adults can choose to row solo in a single shell or join a crew in doubles, quads, 4’s and 8’s.
Adult rowing times accomodate a typical working schedule, 6:00-8:00 a.m. weekdays and 5:00-8:00 p.m. weeknights. Weekend times are also available. (See schedule below.) Mornings typically offer calmer water, which is better for rowing. Even though it is early, as we rowers often say, “there is nothing better than starting your day on the water with friends.”
Rowing is a great way to improve overall fitness. It provides a full-body, low-impact workout and aerobic conditioning. Many find rowing offers excellent cross-training for other sports such as running or nordic skiing.
In addition to rowing, a strong sense of camaraderie and fun comes with being part of the DRC. Social events and group rows, like Thursday night Crew and Brew, are part of the Club’s culture. Hosting Duluth regattas and traveling to regattas in Canada and other parts of the US also build team spirit and friendships.
