THE ROWING TRADITION:
For over a century rowing on the Rock River has provided participants a new “view” of the river. After you have crewed on the ROCK, you will know what unites rowers everywhere. The coordination, camaraderie, sense of purpose and the total body workout keep the tradition alive.
Since 1870, both sweep and sculling rowers meet each spring in anticipation of a ROCK RIVER rowing season filled with the pursuit of perfection and harmony when power, rhythm, and speed combine.
