The member organizations of CRF own their rowing shells, oars and equipment. There are over 130 rowing shells housed in the boathouse.
CRF does have limited rack space available for privately owned shells. Currently there are 32 privately owned shells.
In order to row out of the CRF facility, although a boat may be privately owned, the individual must be a current registered member of one of the member organizations of CRF. They must also be a certified independent sculler to row without anyone else (coach or fellow rower). Please visit the Safety & Operations Manual (SOM) for details. Private owners must sign a boat storage agreement (listed below) show proof of insurance for the rowing shell (and oars) and are responsible for rack fees (see the current assessment fees under About, Financials, Current, Assessments). All rack fees are nonrefundable as listed in the Boat Storage policies listed below. All personal items, such as boat covers or extra riggers, should be stored elsewhere due to limited space.
Rack space must be secured prior to purchase for all shells (private or member organiztion owned) due to limited rack space.
