Vero Beach Rowing is Growing
It is the club’s goal to bring the amazing sport of rowing to all residents of Vero Beach.
Our masters and junior programs currently run year round and we are always looking for new members.
“Vero Beach Rowing is a great asset for our waterside community.”
We are currently building a Community Boathouse & Rowing Center which will enhance both Vero Beach’s economy and its cultural offerings. The boathouse will further emphasize our reputation as a vibrant, prestigious community offering a wide range of cultural activities to our residents and visitors.
Vero Beach is an ideal location for visiting crews to train. We have plenty of protected water and our rowing site is only a few minutes from the beach. Our new facility already has extra rack space for visiting crews to store boats safely and once the boathouse is finished, the current facility will be left in place for visiting crews to use.
