  1. Absolutely wonderful!
    My wife and I recently started rowing in 2014. We currently row singles and a double out of Willow Beach. Will there be an opportunity for rowers to join the club, store private boats and row on LLV? (We are masters E & F)

    1. HI Lawrence. We are starting with all big boats (8+’s and 4+’s) so that we are safe and all boats require coxswains. Once I feel comfortable, and I feel like smaller boats would be useful, then I would love to have fleets of small boats.
      Sign up for a LTR, learn a little sweep rowing and meet the other members. See you down there.

  2. Hi Jim:

    I saw your article in the RJ and am delighted to have rowing start up in LV. I wouldn’t mind getting out in sweeps now and then but I am writing to offer my services. I rowed both lightweight and heavyweight at Yale. If I can be forgiven a moment’s’ bragging I was most valuable freshman lightweight, rowed 7 as a sophomore on the 1970 lightweight team that lost to Leander in the semi-finals at Henley, switched to stroke as a junior and after we repeatedly beat our heavyweight team by 100 meters in 500 meter pieces ended up stroking the Yale heavyweights in the Yale-Harvard 4 mile race that July. Don’t ask about the result; my 7 man broke his oarlock and jumped overboard.

    I coached rowing at a Maine summer camp before my senior year — all singles, which I understand you don’t have for now. But I would be happy to help out if you have a need.

    Parents might be interested that I interview local kids when they apply to Yale and was on my school board in a suburb of Seattle before moving here. My son rowed for the Washington Huskies.

    If you have any interest, reply or give me a call at 702-683-5510.

  3. You just made my day. I rowed bow seat for Marietta College when the women’s v8 won gold at Dad Vails in 2004. After I graduated I was an assistant coach with a high school in Pittsburgh. Moved out here in 2010 for work and have been missing rowing ever since. I can row port, starboard, both sweep and scull, and I’ve even done a bit of coxing. Currently recovering from a ruptured achilles tendon or I’d sign up immediately. Any plans for a master’s program in the future?

  4. HI!
    I’m excited to learn! I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time.
    What should I wear/bring?
    Where do I meet up with the group before the lesson?
    Thanks for your help!
