Adult Rowing

Vero Beach Rowing’s masters program is for rowers at all levels. Whether you are an experienced junior or collegiate rower, or are someone just getting in the boat for the 1st time, our club is for you. Masters members can use the club's facilities and equipment year round and can participate in multiple scheduled coached rowing sessions each week.

You will have the opportunity to hone your skills with our sculling and sweep equipment, as well as stay in shape with our rowing ergometers. Club equipment includes both sweep (2-, 4+, and 8+) and sculling (1x, 2x, 4x) shells.  Our singles include both stable open water boats and faster racing shells. If you have your own shell and would like to store it at our facility for you to use, we have that option as well.

You can usually find some of our masters rowers out every morning and most evenings as the weather permits.
