Lucky Lab Multnomah Village location.
We have plenty of exciting news to share about 2020, including the possibility of indoor boat storage!
Join us on January 1st @ 7:00am for our annual New Years Day row.
This is an open row and will include both sweep and sculling.
Since we all get 1 year older according to US Rowing, it is also a time to celebrate those extra handicap seconds.
Be aware today you may receive an email saying your membership has ended. This is true, all memberships end on 12/31/2019. Please wait until 1/1/2020 to purchase your new membership.
Sunday was crisp and clear, with a striking sunrise greeting rowers as they rigged boats in the chilly pre-dawn. In partnership with Rose City Rowing Club, we hosted 23 clubs with a total of 197 entries (and hundreds of rowers) on Vancouver Lake for a starboard-heavy 5k in gorgeous fall sunshine.
Thanks to all who made this event possible, including many volunteers, officials, the Portland Vancouver Rowing Association, and the many crews who joined us.
Full results are available on Regatta Central.
We are out of the former Portland Boathouse and currently in the process of settling into our new clubhouse on SE Caruthers and the new boat site on SE Ivon.
Check your email for details from coaches on dryland practice, plans for rigging, and additional volunteer opportunities in relation to the move. Questions, ask your captain/s or ping the registrars.
Thanks to all the people who the move this weekend possible, hardworking rowers from Station L and Rose City RC, as well as coaches from both clubs and our friends and neighbors from Wasabi Paddling Club and the Willamette Riverkeeper.
Problem: there’s not enough perspective in one person to tell you the tales of the rowers (35) and coaches (2) for a three-or-four-day trip to Canada. Instead of holding forth, I’ll let the numbers speak.
…or, to quote the announcer bloody hell… Station L! Well done, y’all.
(Tallies h/t Brad – if you like boats+sunrise shots, get thee to his Instagram.)
A passel of Station L rowers (along with a trailer of boats, an awkward of oars, and a pair of coaches) will head to BC on Friday for two days of racing for this year’s Cascadia Masters Championships.
Since we will be minus equipment and staff, we have an adjusted schedule for the weekend:
We would like to invite friends and family of members to participate in National Learn to Row Day, where they can join us on the Willamette River and receive a free introduction to rowing for fun and fitness.

Attention Station L members: if learning how to scull is still on your to-do list, now is the time to cross it off!

There’s plenty going on this week behind the scenes as we get ready for March 1. The coaching staff met Monday night to finalize plans for the new season. Many of you have already heard from your program coaches, but read on for some important reminders. . .
