Boathouse Services

The Rowing Group offers a large number of ways to help the rowing community that are typically served by the in-house boatman or rigger of the boathouse. This is the go-to person for anything that needs to get done outside the realm of the program's rowing coach. In addition the Rowing Group is able to help teams develop their own new rowing programs within the Chicago area. Feel free to contact us at anytime to talk about how we can help your program flourish and grow.

Boat Storage
The Rowing Group can offer indoor storage for rowing boats including fully loaded trailers in the Chicago area. (contact us for other regions) The secure indoor space is for non-active boats only, shells cannot be used on a day to day basis for rowing. This service is great for winter storage and for rowers who are no longer as active on the water as in the past. Storage fees vary for boat/trailer size and are charged for the entire season. The insurance on the boat/trailer must also be kept current and is the responsibility of the owner. Contact us for a quote.
