Riverfront Recapture's Masters Racing Teams


One of the largest and most successful Master’s Racing Teams in the area, Riverfront Recapture’s Men’s and Women’s teams are comprised of a wide range of individuals, from recently graduated collegiate rowers to retirees who learned to row at Riverfront to high school students who steer the boats.
