Riverfront Recapture’s Community Rowing Program is one of the largest and most successful community rowing programs in New England. Recreational and competitive classes, including the opportunity to compete on nationally recognized racing teams, are offered to everyone from pre-teens to retirees.

Current Programs:

Adult Indoor Rowing
Indoor rowing is an excellent workout and a great addition to any excercise regimen. With each stroke on the ergometer you are actively stretching, increasing fitness, building strength AND avoiding the same old crowd and workout at the gym. Erg classes are held at the Greater Hartford Jaycees Community Boathouse in Riverside Park.
