Men’s Club Rowing is one of the longest-running clubs at Manhattan College. It was established in 1932 and is one of the founding schools of the Dad Vail Regatta. Water Practices are held locally in New Rochelle, New York with transportation to and from campus. Land Practices are on campus in Draddy Gymnasium. Our rowers’ technique and endurance are further strengthened during training trips during winter and/or spring break.
