Yale Graduate Crew

Join us on the water!

The purpose of Yale Grad Crew is to provide both novice and experienced men and women rowers from any schools or departments on campus an opportunity to enhance their fitness and rowing ability in a structured environment.

While camaraderie between the members is emphasized, the primary goal of the club is to field competitive squads in rowing regattas versus other graduate and business schools, as well as post-collegiate clubs.

Full-Body Workout

A year of rowing with the Yale Grad Crew!

End of August
Information Sessions

The Captains will attend all the club fairs during orientation, including the SOM Club Fair and the McDougal Center Club Fair, and will host information sessions.

Free trial

You can come and try for free crew life during the first weeks of September to decide if it's the right sport for you!

Fall Semester
Practice, Outings, and Regatta

During the semester, we practice between 2 and 5 times a week depending on your fitness/rowing goals, teach the novices how to row, and experienced rowers take part of the Head of the Housatonic Regatta in Derby and the Head of the Schuylkill in Philadelphia.

Winter Season
Indoor and Tank Sessions

Winter is cold here. And we cannot go on the water outside anymore. However, we continue the indoor practices and use the tank in the basement of Payne Whitney Gym during the long months of snow. We also participate to the Canal Dock Boathouse Indoor Relay and CRASH-B World Championship in Boston.

Spring Semester
Back to water and Sprints!

Wharton invites all the post-graduate crews to Wharton Sprints! It's the first regatta for our novice rowers! We also travel also to Boston for the Hamburger Cup hosted by MITRC, and to Derby for the Derby Sweep and Scull Regatta.

End of the year
Cups Night

A night a celebration and networking with your fellow rowers, where we reflect on the year, and host the Yale Grad Crew Award Ceremony at Mory's!


All summer, when most of the crew is away for internships or summer jobs, New Haven-based YGC rowers learn to scull and go out as often as they wish!

Club Dues

Rowing in an expensive sport and we try our best to keep dues and fees to a minimum.
Here is what to expect:

Meet this season Captains
