General Sculling

For Experienced Rowers

Program Description

The General Sculling program allows a rower who has paid full WRRA membership fees to use WRRA sculling equipment on the Cuyahoga River (WRRA owned 1x, 2x, 2- and 4x sculls and oars), as ruled by the Board of Directors and Sculling Committee and is subject to equipment availability.
