The Penn AC Masters program is a diverse group of rowers– women and men, former Olympic and National Team members, former college and high school rowers as well as rowers who began the sport as adults. Penn AC Masters range from rowers competing at local and National levels to those enjoying the recreational benefits of rowing.


The Masters program at Penn AC is proud to sponsor the Rookie Regatta which began in 2008. The Rookie Regatta provides an opportunity for novice rowers to gain experience competing and racing. Held in early August, this is a masters only event and is open to rowers with limited or no competitive experience. Novice rowers from any club or boathouse are welcome.
