Becoming a Member
Whether you're a competitive or recreational rower, as an active member you are part of the NPBRC team. Active Members receive access to club facilities, equipment and coaches and are covered under the club's insurance through USRowing. Our active members may compete in regattas across the country under the NPBRC banner and enjoy many other benefits. Contact us with your questions or drop by our location to meet our team.
We offer two types of boats for our members' use: "Recreational" shells and "Team" (or "racing") shells. Our Recreational boats are sturdy, stable single and double dories or wider, highly durable training shells. Rec boats are ideal for folks who do not wish to race but would like to enjoy the waterway at their own pace or get on the water by themselves. Our "team" boats, on the other hand, are built for speed and competition and include racing singles, pairs/doubles, fours, and eights.

Please note: memberships are subject to Board review and approval to ensure a safe and responsible environment for not only club members but our landlord, friends, and neighbors. Before you can row on your own, all members must be certified by the Club to validate that they can handle boats safely on the waterway and know the club's rules regarding conduct and safety. If you are a new rower taking a Learn to Row class, ask your instructor how to become certified prior to membership.
