Cape Coral Rowing Club Inc



The Cape Coral Rowing Club (CCRC) at Cape Harbour is a sweep & sculling rowing club, open to all members of the community and around the world who are interested in rowing.

CCRC was recently ranked third as a place to "Retire and Row" by

The CCRC has two different age groups of rowing members.

Masters Crew practices are 6pm (earlier in the Winter) on Tuesday & Thursday, Masters Drills & Skills practice is at 6pm on Wed, and open practice is at 7am on Saturday & Sunday. There are also additional practices held for race preparation and sculling, and midweek early morning practices.

Scholastic HS Crew practices are weekdays starting at approximately 3:30pm. Middle School Crew practices vary.

All rowers in these sessions receive dedicated coaching in rowing technique as well as in personal fitness from our staff of US Rowing certified coaches. All practices generally last about two hours.

After practices we usually meet to refuel at one of the many fine local restaurants for dinner or breakfast.

If you rowed in college or with another club and are looking to join CCRC, or row as a visitor, for additional information contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

See you on the water!

This is our practice area located on the secluded waters of Cape Coral's spreader canal system. You'll be rowing on wide canals with waterfront homes on one side and beautiful mangroves on the other. There is also the occasional trip out through the Cape Harbour boat lock and onto the Caloosahatchee River.
