More About Gentle Giant Rowing Club
This local nonprofit organization partners with the City of Somerville to offer rowing as an activity for all regardless of age or income. The Blessing of the Bay Boathouse on the shore of the Mystic River provides facilities for classes. The river itself is where the group offers rowing instruction for novices and trains its competitive crews. They take their name from The Gentle Giant Moving Company, which generously sponsors the group. Gentle Giant Rowing also founded the Somerville High School Rowing Team which competes each Spring.
