We occasionally get asked to help connect people who don’t have a team to row with.  We can sometimes help these rowers find a crew to join as part of our Join a Team opportunity.  If this is you then we’d recommend entering the race and getting in contact with us. We have helped to form a number of successful crews through the years and know the key elements that are needed to build a strong and happy team.
