August 1, 2021 - To all our NBRC friends,

As you may know, at long last we are now able to re-open. We are in the process of finishing the preparation of our rowing and coaching equipment and launching our program offerings on a restricted basis. Initially, we will be limiting our hours to allow for completion of New Bedford Public School's highly regarded Sea Lab summer rowing program for ninth-graders...June through August. Please check this website for updates as we move through the remainder of August in preparation for our "late summer-early fall" opening on a broader basis.

Please know that, in light of the recent Delta-variant-related rise in COVID cases, we will be following all CDC-recommended guidelines to keep everyone safe. We will be carefully monitoring the situation. The most important thing is to make sure we continue to conduct our programs in as safe an environment as possible.

We look forward to seeing you, soon. We are as eager to get our programs fully back out on the water as you are, and we thank you for your patience.
