NAC Men on Water Team
The NAC currently offers a new Master Men’s Rowing Program. All that is required is that you have a current NAC Annual Membership to be able to row with the Team.
The NAC Men’s rowing group is a recreational rowing program. If it isn’t fun, we have no interest. We participate in a few select regattas if they are easy to attend, and if the venue is an area which we wish to visit. Our favorite regatta is the Wine Country Classic, which needs no explanation as to what drives our interest. Our group consists of men of all ages from recent college graduates to rowers approaching 90 years old! We also have a significant variance in ability with many beginning rowers as well as some Olympic medalists.
We refer to ourselves as the Donut Club. This name originated from our Friday tradition of doing a half workout at 6 a.m. followed by a coffee social on 17th street. Perhaps you have seen us at one of the local coffee shops, we are easy to spot in our spandex for which we apologize. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday our group does an ERG workout at 6 a.m. On Thursday and Sunday we head out on the water in organized boats. We typically float our eight, quad, and doubles. On Tuesday and Saturday we row in singles. There are plenty of opportunities to get out on the water with other rowers of all abilities. Our goal is to have fun, learn, develop our technical skills, and stay healthy and happy
Please feel free to join us for a Friday morning workout. The work out is easy and we follow it up by getting together for coffee and solving the world’s problems. This is a great way to meet several rowers and assess if you might aspire to Donut Club Membership!
