Racing shells

The boat bays are home to both private and club-owned shells. Wooden and fiberglass singles, doubles, quads, sweep boats and the Octet .

For open rows on Port Townsend Bay, our launches are equipped with life vests and safety equipment. We run a rigorous maintenance program, repairing and replacing boats and equipment when necessary.

Ergs

The club has ergs in both the boathouse and the rec center. The boathouse ergs are free & the slides are back so you can hook the ergs together.

The rec center requires an annual waiver to be signed plus $1/day to use the ergs & weights in the room. No need to sign up for the ergs in either place.

On the Concept2 website you can keep an on-line logbook if you want to–be sure to choose Rat Island as your affiliation & check “Yes” to be included on our list.
