Welcome to Rowing
in Brunswick, Maine. 

Merrymeeting Community Rowing Association (MCRA) is doing business as a part of 

Portland Community Rowing Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, focused on

providing instruction in the sport of both sweep rowing and sculling to youths and adults in 

the Brunswick and Portland, Maine areas.


Currently, MCRA has a facility at the Water Street boat ramp in Brunswick. Our fleet consists 

of three coaxed fours, two doubles and three single sculls. We also offer rack space for singles.


The site offers about 3000m of excellent water alongside the walking path, and good access to 

Merrymeeting Bay. Many say this is the best spot to row in Maine.


The MCRA's primary purpose is to further the sport of rowing in the greater Brunswick area through

focused coached instruction that spans the experience spectrum from Learn-to-Row and Novice to 

Experienced Programs. We enjoyed the talents of three very experienced coaches during the 

2012 season and successfully trained over 75 rowers. We look forward to an even larger and more 

successful 2013 season. Come Row with Us!
