ROW Open-Water Northeast is an umbrella organization formed to promote the sport of open-water rowing involving different craft classes in the Northeast USA.

We hope you find the information and resources on our website beneficial.

One of our main objectives is to provide a central location, where “anyone with a paddle” can go to find info about upcoming events, where a club/organization/group is located, and most importantly who to contact for additional info.

We asked those who had expressed interest to provide us with their events for the upcoming year. These events were then posted on our Calendar of Events page. If you have an event that you would like to have added, please contact us.

Row Open Water Northeast does not restrict or impose ANY type of rules or regulations on clubs/organizations/groups.

Our meeting on February 7, 2015 of open-water rowing boats was arranged for the organizational purpose of forming an umbrella organization comprising clubs and individuals interested in promoting the sport of open-water rowing in the Northeast US. Each club/organization/group has their own set of guidelines that they follow.

If you would like to contact us…the email address is BOD at RowOpenWaterNE dot com.
