Frequently Asked Questions

  1. ARE YOU OFFERING PROGRAMS DURING THE PANDEMIC? Absolutely, and most restrictions have now been lifted. See our COVID-19 response and our Individual Program Descriptions for more information.
  2. HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH GNRC? See our New to Our Club page!
  3. DO YOU OFFER BOAT RENTALS? No, we do not. We offer a fixed schedule of coached rows, and our members sign up in advance.
  4. DOES YOUR CLUB PARTICIPATE IN REGATTAS (I.E., COMPETITIVE RACING)? Yes we do, but, sadly, not right now. Regattas are a lot of fun, but they are large gatherings, and are not being run during the pandemic. As soon as regattas return, we will be racing again!
  5. WHAT TYPES OF BOATS DO YOU ROW? We row racing shells, not coastal or wide-body boats. Most of the time we scull in singles, doubles, and quads. On occasion, we roll out an eight, straight four, or a pair for sweep rowing.
