In North Jersey, I’d recommend the following:
Bergen County Rowing Academy (Overpeck Park North End)
ACRA (Monksville Reservoir)
Maroon Blades (Ridgewood)
Passaic River Rowing Association (North Arlington)
Nereid Boat Club (Rutherford)
Rockland Rowing (Hudson Valley)
CrossFitters – this is your chance to try a new sport that you are used to simulating in the gym. Weather forecast is awesome – try it out!
