Our next event is the Monterey Bay Crossing on August 20, 2016.  The Monterey Bay Crossing is a 22-nautical mile race from Santa Cruz Harbor to Monterey Harbor. Rowers leave before daybreak and arrive 3-7 hours later in Monterey. Rowers must be escorted by power boats for safety. Though the course is a straight heading all the way to Monterey, various navigational and equipment challenges can happen along the way, not to mention the effects of fatigue. The Monterey Bay Crossing is for experienced rowers only.

The Santa Cruz Rowing Club is a very social group. We host a September rowing tour every other year, and a Fun Row in October as we revise logistics for Lobster Row 2016. Check back here again soon for updates about Club events. Events are a great way to spend your valuable Volunteer Hours!

    I know it’s a little different to what you guys might be used to but I wondered if some of your members might be interested in the Pacific Row Race which starts in Monterey Bay in June 2014. Up to 40 crews of one, two and four will set off from the Californian shores and finish in Hawaii between 30 and 90 days later.
    Please do get in touch if you think that Santa Cruz Rowing club might be interested in being involved in this amazing event even if it’s just being involved in a parade at the start.
