CORTLANDT ROWING FALL MASTERS PROGRAM
Whether you have never picked up an oar, or rowed in high school or college, we welcome all masters (adults ages 21 and up) into the Fall Masters Program.

RACING at REGATTAS
CCRA Masters aims to compete in several local and regional regattas throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. Races and events will be selected by the head coach based on the competitive potential of the crew and the attitude, attendance, and performance of the individuals throughout the season. Masters opting to race must review and agree to the regatta registration procedures and policies of the club. Regatta seat fees are additional; travel expenses will be picked up by the club this fall.
Regatta schedule can be found on the Events and Races Calendar page.
