Piermont rowers joined forces with the Piermont Community Garden Club and celebrated spring with a massive clean-up. Both the garden and the Hudson shore line were severely impacted by Super Storm Sandy and required much debris lifting, digging, and hauling of dirt and stone in order to restore the area to its former beauty. The day was beautiful, sunny, and virtually perfect for all the “cross fit” activities. Check out the pictures in our gallery.
We are planning three coaching sessions in the tanks at West Point: March 24, April 7, and April 14. The fee is $20.00 per hour-and-a-half session and it is a great way to get the feel for rowing without being on the water – and without investing a great deal of money. The mornings are split between experienced rowers (from 9:00 – 10:30) and complete newbies (from 10:30 – 12:00). So, join us for an introduction to rowing as well as for detailed skill honing, and, with access to video taping and huge mirrors, the ability to see your stroke from the outside. The endless pursuit continues!
The HOC has nothing on the Piermont Rowing Club’s long row! What a gorgeous fall day. Continue reading

Whether dawn or dusk, the time is right to be on the river, gliding along not effortlessly but peacefully.
Getting the boats out of storage, waxing and cleaning the equipment, might not sound like the perfect way to spend a Saturday. But members of the Piermont Rowing Club were more than willing to get the work done because of future rewards.
It was early in the morning on a rainy, chilly Saturday morning in April, a time one might expect to be taking the day’s first sip of hot coffee or tea.
But for a group of highly motivated members of the Piermont Rowing Club, it was no time for coffee or tea, hot or otherwise. It was time to be on the banks of the Hudson River to get their boats and equipment ready for a new season. The center of activity might have been in a parking lot but it was within ear shot of the water’s gentle lapping up against the rocks on the river’s shore and in anticipation of many fulfilling moments to come.
