FWRC equipment consists of recreational single sculls, intermediate sculls, elite single sculls, recreational double sculls, elite double sculls and quadruple sculls. The club equipment is clearly identified and separated from the private boats and oars of members stored on-site.
The Club is governed by an executive committee that includes committee chairman for Membership, Activities, Boathouse, Treasurer, Vice President and President. These officers are elected each year at the Annual Meeting and are listed on our Contact page. Experienced rowers wishing to join or row with the Club should contact the Membership Chairman or the Boathouse Manager.
