ARA COVID-19 Statement
In compliance with state and Mayor Berkowitz' 7/31/20 Emergency Order concerning COVID-19, ARA is going to scale back with Anchorage for a 30 day reset, and use Phase 1 of our operations plan with the exception of staggered start times. Classes and group events are done for the season. We are rowing singles only and doubles with cohabitants. Please visit our phased plan in the "About Us" section of our site and sign up for our updates to get current information.
