    Hey guys, i'm looking to get into rowing here in LA and was wondering what places were good. Was looking for a gay rowing assn., but can't seem to find one. I checked the gay and lesbian rowing federation already.

    Thanks guys,

    Cheers, Matthew

    The Long Beach Rowing Association trains out of Belmont Shores at the Marine Stadium in Long Beach.

    LionsRC and LARC both row in Marina Del Rey.

    I row a single out of the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center.

    Hey Matthew: check out our new social network on GLRF; we have unlimited groups and we have a group for gay rowers for Los Angeles called the West Hollywood Oars, aka WHOars. Here is the link:

    Hi,
    If you are still looking to row in LA feel free to send me a message. I'd be happy to fill you in on rowing options in Marina Del Rey. I coach in the Marina and would be happy to assist you in getting started.

    Cheers,

    I'd kill to have a gay rowing partner/team in the LB/ North OC area.

    Anyone?

    Makes me wish that I had a beach home. icon_sad.gif I would love to row. I tried it for a really short time a couple years ago in Hawaii and just loved it. I live too far from the ocean. icon_sad.gif

    hmmm....I wonder if I can get the city to dam up the river down where I live. It is already damed up above me in 3 or 4 other dams.

    Does anyone currently row in the Los Angeles area? If you are looking for a fiery and enthusiastic coxswain, look no further, I'm ready to get back into it again.

    New to rowing! But I am definitely interested in starting. Any recommendations for a amateur?
