The Southern Maryland Rowing Association offers community rowing programs for all ability levels in St. Mary's City, Maryland.  We are the "Mighty Crabs", and we row out of both the St. Mary's College of Maryland River Center and the Historic St. Mary's City Recreation area at Chancellor's point.  From either launching point, we row on the beautiful St. Mary's River.

Who We Are

We have access to 8s, 4+, 4x, 2x, and singles. The SMRA season runs from March through November. 


Participation is mixed gender and is based on level of ability: novice, recreational, and competitive. Depending on member interest, the club competes in nearby regattas.

SMRA is funded through membership fees and donations.
