More information about USRowing Masters National Championships

Rowing events during the USRowing Masters National Championships will be held at Lake Merritt (pictured below). Known as the “Crown Jewel” of Oakland, Lake Merritt is an urban lake in the middle of downtown. With a 3.2 mile circumference, the naturally developed, humanly maintained lake is a mix of fresh and salt water connected to the Oakland Estuary leading out to the San Francisco Bay.
