This June the Lake Sunapee Rowing Club will begin its 11th year of rowing on Lake Sunapee. The Club rows out of the Georges Mills Marina on Route 11 from June through October. We offer coached rowing for experienced rowers and one-on-one rowing lessons for new rowers. The age range of our members is 15 to 78 years old!
We row in single shells, fours and eights depending upon the number of rowers we have each day. We regularly row Monday through Thursday mornings from 5:45 to 7 and on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings from 5 to 7. A group also rows on Sunday mornings from 8 to 10. Rowing lessons are arranged to fit the schedules of coach and student and are often held during the regular rowing sessions.
During September and October our rowers who wish to try their skill at racing have practice sessions and travel together to one or more of the many regattas in New England. We often have competitive rowers in this session.
Our club also has an Adaptive Rowing program for disabled individuals who would like to experience rowing. In this program an adaptive athlete rows with a coach in a double (a two person boat). The lessons are held on Tuesdays from 3 to 7PM. One of our members has gone to the Bayada Regatta, a national regatta for adaptive rowers.
