USRowing's National Learn to Row Day will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 9:00AM until Noon at the UMass/Lowell Bellegarde Boathouse.

Rowing with the MRRA

Each year the MRRA conducts Learn-to-Row programs to teach the sport of rowing to individuals with no prior sweep rowing or sculling experience. We accept adults over age 18 who are physically fit enough to try the sport and are interested in learning to row for Fitness, Fun or even Competition. If this is a goal for you, then we cordially invite you to apply for one or more of our Learn-to-Row Programs.   Visit our Programs page for more information.

We hope to see you on National Learn To Row Day.   No prior registration is required, but if you have any questions, please write to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

High School Racing in May - Rowing Restrictions Print E-mail
Dear MRRA
The following dates in May have rowing restrictions due to Lowell High School hosted regattas. 
The agreement is that MRRA boats are requested to be off the water and docks by the time boats are being launched (roughly 45 min before racing starts).  If you do still want to row, you must present yourself to Jess Hayes Murray who is the regatta director for the LHS races and let her know you would like to go for a row. Then, you are to check in with the Dockmaster and get the OK to launch and proceed upriver and past the power lines for your row.  When you return, you must stop at the DCR ramp or wherever the starting Marshall is located and ask permission to return to the boathouse. When the starter says you may proceed, you row on the extreme starboard shore all the way to the end of the 2K course and cross the river after the race course (so at the Pavilion), and proceed back to the boathouse and docks.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. 
** If you have time and would like to help with any of these regattas, please contact Jess directly - help is always appreciated.
 
 
May 3rd- Novice Challenge. Racing starts at 8am, so off docks by 7:15am
May 10th and 11th- Lowell Invitational. On Saturday racing starts at 7am, so off docks by 6:30;  on Sunday off docks by 7:30am
May 17th and 18th- US Rowing Junior Regional's.  Launch times TBD - expect off water by 7am.   
May 25th- MPSRA.  Racing starts at 8am so off docks by 7:15am 
 
Thank you for your cooperation.  Remember that you can still row, we just have to be very respectful and deferential to the race.
 
- Karen Scammell, MRRA President
