Capital Rowing Club @ USRowing Masters Nationals

Hello teammates and friends!

We’re all excited to be here in Oak Ridge, Tennessee for the chance to race (and hopefully beat) this country’s top masters teams. We’d like you to join us! Every day the final races for each event will be live-streamed on YouTube at links included below and we’d love for you to cheer us on from home!

Here are the website links for everything related to Masters Nationals (there is a different link for each day) –

Final races usually begin at around 1:00-1:30 PM EDT each day, but be sure to check the US Rowing link included at the bottom of this message for any updates related to potential weather or other regatta delays. Please note that many of the events below have multiple pre-ceding heat races in which the various CRC boats need to do well prior to racing in finals for each event. You can check the results page on USRowing or Regatta Central to make sure your favorite Capital boat made it through to finals!

What we look for:

  • Experienced rowers, who have previously competed (masters, collegiate, national team, etc.)
  • Coxswains with racing experience
  • 2k erg
    • Men = 7:15 or below (age-dependent)
    • Women = 8:15 or below (age-dependent)
    • These are a general guideline, and should not discourage you from trying out.

Final determinations will be made at tryouts.
