Clear Lake Scullers is a community based rowing club offering access to rowing and paddling equipment and instruction. Membership is open to the public and there are programs for youth and adults year around. The goal of Clear Lake Scullers is to provide broad access to the wonderful asset that is Clear Lake, expose people to a wide variety of aquatic sports with emphasis on safety and competence, as well as teaching the skills necessary for athletes to train and race at the collegiate, masters, or national level. The club is located in the City of Lakeport at the site of Natural High School on Main Street just north of Library Park. Currently, the club is a fenced in yard, but we hope to soon erect a new boathouse.

Adult Rowing Camp
Rowing, as done in the Olympics, could be considered the ultimate team sport and we can do it right here on beautiful Clear Lake. Join the Clear Lake Scullers to learn the basics necessary to be part of an 8 person team boat. We will start with how to get in and out of the boat, understanding the commands, stopping and turning the boat, and after the basics are mastered, rowing with power — power that comes from your legs, back and arms in one smooth motion. People at any level of fitness can participate in this sport and work out at their comfort level, so don’t be shy about not being in the shape you might like to be in, as few of the current club members are either!
When: July 5 thru July 8, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
Cost: $100 (applied to summer membership)
