Masters Masters Program Offered Year-Round


Our Masters Intermediate/Recreational class is for those rowers who have some experience with rowing but are not yet ready for (or interested in) rowing competitively.  The course offers coached instruction typically in shells designed for 2 or 4 people, as well as singles rowing. Practice times are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:15am or 8:45am. This is a great course to practice and improve in a fun and friendly environment.



This course is for Masters rowers who are interested in competing.  PCRA has competitive Masters of all abilities, from those that have rowed through college and on the national level, to Masters who have discovered a new sport and enjoy the camaraderie of regattas and the challenge of competition. Practice times are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 5:30am or 7:15am.


Learn To Row

We are always looking for people interested in learning what rowing is all about. Rowing is a wonderful activity, available to people of all ages. It is a challenging, rewarding, team-based sport, and it doesn’t hurt that we row in a beautiful setting on the Orchard Beach lagoon. Contact Masters coach Nick Ippolito at for more information
