What we look for:
Experienced rowers, who have previously competed (masters, collegiate, national team, etc.)
Coxswains with racing experience
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.
Capital Rowing Club always looks forward to the
Diamond State Masters Regatta — beautiful course, great hosts, and good competition. This year, like many before it, Capital showed up in force, which allowed us to bring home the Sweep Trophy.

Thanks everyone for the great racing yesterday at Capital Sprints! We had a record number of entries (300!!) and clubs (24!!) participate this year, meaning for almost every event we had 5 or 6 boats across, racing down the Anacostia river.
