From staff reports
After halting last March due to Covid-19, the Beaufort Rowing Club (BRC) restarted Club rowing sessions last week.
The BRC rows on Battery Creek three mornings a week, heading either “up” Battery Creek or under the bridge toward the Sands at Port Royal. Typically, several shells are put in the water each of the three mornings, either 8-rower shells with a coxswain or 4-rower shells with a coxswain.
The Club has more than 40 members of all ages and levels of experience, from those who took up the sport in college to those who may have taken up the sport more recently after taking a “Learn to Row” course with the Club.
“It’s a fun group,” President of the BRC Board Carl Linke said in a release.
The BRC is losing access to its current dock at the end of April and is scrambling to find a new location, whether public or private, to store and launch its shells.
“With all the water around us, there must be a perfect spot somewhere nearby,” says Linke. “BRC has been rowing Beaufort waters for over a dozen years. We don’t want to lose this wonderful club.”
