Boat Storage Program
Canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, sailboats, and rowing shells can be stored for an annual fee. Please inquire separately about vessel storage (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dry Land Rowing and Yoga on the Platform occur year-round either out on the platform (weather permitting) or indoors in one of the boat bays. Each class is $10 for non-members, free for members. Locate your desired fitness class under the Programs tab at the top of the page to RSVP.
Boating includes both racing and coastal rowing shells, dragon boats, and kayaks. For safety purposes, all outings must include at least two shells.
All outings are currently recreational or fitness oriented. As interest, numbers, and equipment grows, competitive training will become available.
Community Boating Days will tentatively occur once a month (weather pending). These events are FREE to attend, and all of our boating options and fitness classes will be accessible. Please RSVP under our Events tab.
