MD SPECIAL OLYMPICS  August 13 and 20, 2022  Every year Washington College hosts the Maryland Special Olympics kayak events.  CRRC volunteers and supports this opportunity for Maryland special olympians.  


CRRC AND ARC SCRIMMAGE DAY  September 18, 2022  On a slightly breezy Sunday in September, CRRC hosted ARC (Annapolis Rowing Club) for a day of scrimmaging fun on the Chester River.  All club members, all ages and rowing experience were encouraged to participate.  Though a “fun” event, competition prevailed at the “attention, go” signal.  Annapolis and Chester River sprinted (1000m) in 1x, 2x, 4x, 4-, 4+, and 8+ races.  Two of our novice rowers were in winning boats!   Way to go Wayles and Erin!  Special thanks to Coach John for course safety and management,   Dock Master Roger, and Time Keeper Donnie!
