Bainbridge Island Rowing offers a variety of sweep and sculling opportunities, for recreation as as well as for racing, for Open/Masters rowers (age 19 and above) with prior rowing experience or at least one learn-to-row session under their belts.
All qualified, paid-up BIR Masters are welcome at all rows. Check with the coach if you have questions about which program is best for your experience and skill level. Qualified visitors are welcome to row for free up to two times.
Scholarships are now available for Masters Rowers. If you are interested in a rowing fee scholarship, please go to the Scholarship Page.
If you plan to row, go to the relevant Doodle calendar (see Masters/Sweep Programs) and sign up in advance, to assist coaches in preparing line-ups. Feel free to contact the coaches or coordinators noted below for additional information.
For information about learn-to-row classes, see the Learn To Row page.
For details about the different sweep rowing programs, see Masters/Sweep Programs.
Rowers new to BIR must complete a float test before rowing or provide a copy of one from a previous rowing organization.
Small boat storage
A very limited number of rack spaces are available to current BIR members for non-BIR boats (singles and doubles). For details, see the 2013 Boat Storage Agreement form. Rack fee fees for the year may be paid all at once or in three installments due March 1, June 1, and September 1.
