The Connecticut River
The Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse
The Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse is located on the Connecticut River and is less than a 10 minute walk from anywhere on campus. The upper floor has the athlete’s locker rooms and a large erg room which is split up into space for two teams to train. This room is centered with a large fireplace and couches. Outside there is a long deck spanning the width of the boathouse and affording a beautiful view of the river. Often rowers come down to the boathouse early to sit on the deck before practice.
Across our parking lot, we have Fuller Boathouse. Fuller Boathouse was the team’s primary boathouse before the Friend’s boathouse was built. Fuller has three boat bays. The first bay is dedicated to our fulltime boatman who has a completely outfitted repair shop. Everything from routine maintenance to major repair on eights can be done in the shop. In Fuller the two other boat bays which are used as storage for additional boats and equipment. Fuller adds a much appreciated amount of storage to our already spacious Friend’s Boathouse.
Due to the wonderful nature of our river, it is a great place for rowing small boats. Accordingly, we have a boathouse dedicated to them. Singles, doubles and a number of pairs are stored in this boathouse and are used regularly. This smaller boathouse has it own dock which allows easy access to the water with the smaller boats.
