The Whatcom Rowing Association Junior Team is made up of about 30 Whatcom County high school and middle school rowers who have been working hard to become the best rowers we can be.
Goal: Add a straight (uncoxed) quad to WRA’s fleet.
Why do we need a straight quad?
As a small club, WRA is most competitive in smaller boats like quads, fours, and doubles. Quads are one of the main boats in which the juniors train in, love, and row well.
In higher levels of competition, like varsity races, quads do not have coxswains. As of now WRA does not have a boat that can be rigged as a straight quad and this puts our team at a disadvantage when racing at the varsity level.
Having a straight quad will make our club more competitive and give us the ability us reach our full potential as a team.
Thank you for your support!
