Logbook Sculling

Logbook Sculling is for rowers who have passed the WCR Captain’s Test and have been cleared to row WCR club singles/doubles. Boats and oars are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once a rower has passed the WCR Captain's Test, they will receive credentials to access iCrew, our online boat reservation system.

Logbook sculling is not available during coached sessions.

Sculling Clinic

This program is for active sweep rowers who would like some focused time and instruction sculling in a 1x, either a Zephyr recreational single or one of our "skinny" racing singles. This program will support your sculling goals, which might include:

  • Trying sculling to see if you like it

  • Building confidence to take out a single during a masters practice when the numbers don't divide perfectly into team boats, or

  • Acquire skills and experience necessary to pass the Captain's Test and scull on your own outside of team practice.

This program meets two consecutive weekends:

Saturday 8:00-10:00AM

Sunday 8:00-10:00AM
