Welcome to Mendota Rowing Club!
As Madison's oldest community rowing club, we welcome both adult and junior rowers.
Rowing out of the Bernard-Hoover boathouse on beautiful Lake Mendota, we use 25 high quality rowing shells rigged for both sculling and sweep rowing. When not on the water, we train as a team on indoor rowing machines to improve our fitness.
Time to learn about our Learn-to-Row programs, join the club, or renew your membership.

Yoga at the Boathouse
Would you like to remain calm and focused when oars are clashing, the coxswain is yelling and the boat is rocking? Try adding yoga into your workout routine!
Mendota Rowing Club, and instructor Cecily Frederick, offered an 8-week yoga session over the winter. Given its success, we are repeating this event again, this time for 7 weeks in perfect timing for the spring season. It will help you increase your balance, flexibility and mental concentration.
Anyone is welcome to join the class at anytime. You do not need to be an MRC member nor a rower to participate. This class is opened to the entire community. Mixed level class. Beginners Welcome!
When: Sundays 8:00-9:15am
Starts: Class runs for 7 weeks & starts May 5 thru June 23 (no class on Memorial Day weekend May 26)
