"From few, we are many."
The Chatham Area Rowing Association is currently shut down. Due to a decision by the Department of Natural Resources, The Army Core, and Savannah Bend Marina, our team was not able to stay at it's home in Thunderbolt, GA.
Displaced and without a rowing dock, we were forced to close our doors as the team looks for a new home. There is a diligent search to find a new location and get Savannah rowing again. I am positive that a location will come soon. However, until then, I am sorry for the disapointment and news.

Letter from the Coach
Thank you for finding The Chatham Area Rowing Association's web page. I hope it will help answer many of the questions anyone has when interested in learning to row. When I began CARA in 2007, it was in answer to SCAD's cutting of a beloved crew that I helped coach, shape, and be part of since 1989.
I could not imagine our lovely city, with all of our waterways and culture, without a rowing team available for our many college students. My decision to continue our SCAD CREW legacy soon expanded to include High School students and Adults all under one CARA name. I am very proud to say that in five short years we win medals, have a lot of fun, and best of all, have become a large family with members ages 11-71.
Rowing is such a beautiful and exciting way to get on the water. Our team offers something for anyone that wants to learn to row, get in shape, or take on the excitement of being on a team. Take a look at our program page. Complete information about each program, dates, and fees are set up in a way so that you can train the minimum couple days a week or more as your schedule allows.
Crew is a big part of my life and I hope you make it yours. I attribute my personal success to the discipline and knowledge I have been taught from being on a rowing team. If you have any questions after reading through our site, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting you and having you be a part of our CARA Titans.
With a morning sunrise,
Coach Scott Nohejl
