To become an independent sculler, you must pass both a practical test and a written test. These tests are to ensure that you can safely take a boat out on Lake Mendota without a coach present. They are required for anyone wishing to scull independently out of Mendota RC's boathouse, including private boat owners. You should also be familiar with the contents of the Sculler's Manual and the Lake Mendota traffic pattern.
