Noank Rowing Club is a non-profit community organization for all ages, fitness levels, and abilities. We row on Beebe Cove and Mystic River launching from Spicer Park in Noank, CT three seasons a year. We gather indoors for Winter Conditioning during the off season.
Joining the club gives you access to team boats including eights, fours, quads, doubles and single sculls. We also provide excellent coaching and rowing classes for all ages, as you choose. NRC is an active club with a sense of community, a group who shares the passion for rowing and being on the water, “building community…one stroke at a time”.
We are keenly aware of water safety so we request all members must be able to swim. New members are evaluated by our coaching staff so they can be matched with the appropriate equipment and/or class. See our Rules and Regulations document for additional requirements.
