Corporate Rowing 2018

Are you up for the challenge?! It’s time to get your crew together!

This event is a unique opportunity to support the local rowing community and be involved in an enjoyable and effective teamwork initiative.

You provide the people – find a crew of at least 8 people who want an experience to remember!   We’ll provide the coaches, boats, and heaps of encouragement. We’ll teach everyone how to row an eight over four weeks and then you compete against other corporate teams in a round robin competition over 500m.

Rules: Each crew must have at least 2 women; No crew can have more than 2 registered rowers
