Masters' Nationals


Welcome to Mendota Rowing Club!

As Madison's oldest community rowing club, members come from all walks of life. Our club includes rowers with varying levels of skill, from brand new rowers to those who have been rowing for years. We welcome people who wish to row for recreation as well as those interested in high level competition. Our belief is that rowing should be accessible and affordable and that multiple generations have the opportunity to experience the fun and healthy lifestyle of rowing together. Mendota Rowing Club's mission is to build a diverse community of life-long 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 on indoor rowing machines to improve our fitness.


Currently seeking Adult Masters' coaches for 2015, weekday and Saturday mornings.
Also seeking an experienced Junior coach, weekday afternoons.
These are paid positions.
If interested, contact Club President, Tom, at  tbreunig at mendotarowingclub.com
