Cleveland's Premier Adult Rowing Club
Established 1989


WRRA has a broad range of shells for almost any rower. The WRRA fleet consists of multiple 8+, 4+, 4X, 2X/2-, and 1X that are used across all WRRA programs.

Independent rowers/scullers who have paid full WRRA membership fees to use WRRA equipment on the Cuyahoga River (designated shells and oars), as ruled by the Board of Directors and the equipment committee, subject to equipment availability.

Participants using club equipment must have passed the necessary safety qualifications before using any equipment without an accompanying coach on the Cuyahoga River.

With our membership reaching 500+ rowers, the paid coached programs have precedence over independent crews. 

Any questions or inquiries, please contact the Equipment Committee at

Maintenance Saturdays

Join us every Saturday at 9am to help clean, fine tune or paint equipment. We have a good group of people who help regularly. Come to meet new people or just get your hands a little dirty.

Equipment Issue Reporting

Equipment reporting is essential for timely repairs and maintenance of the boats, oars, and cox boxes.

All crews are required to fill out an equipment form whenever there is an equipment issue. 

Report all damage or equipment issues. Fill out and submit a form with the program director or place in clear pouch on the bulletin board at bay door #3, or online using the link below. 

Go fill out the form >
