Preparing for the JUNE 1 opening of CRI

We are both excited and equally cautious in our approach to conservatively resuming our operations at the Harry Parker Boathouse.  Getting back on the water will demand our collective patience, common sense, and personal responsibility to ensure that we keep each other safe and enable CRI to continue to serve our community.

Additional information, protocols and procedures that will guide us through our return to the boathouse will be forthcoming.

WHAT WILL OPEN, Monday June 1

  • Somerville Sculling Pavillion:  Weekdays:  5am to 7pm; Weekends: 6am to 11am.  Logbook and Private Boat sculling only

  • Harry Parker Boathouse:  First floor bathrooms only.  Front Desk, Coaches Office, and Admin Offices will remain closed.

CRI Wakeless Safety Launch

Community Rowing Set out to construct a better and Safer Low Wake Coaching Platform and we believe we did with our SMK 8m.  Community Rowing is a Safety First Organization and we strive to carry that mentality throughout everything we do.  The SMK 8m launch with its lower sheer, tight maneuverability, low wake, and clear deck, helps accomplish that goal.
