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.
