Bowdoin Rowing Center

Smith Boathouse

The Bowdoin Rowing boathouse, which is named Smith House, sits on the New Meadows River, 4.5 miles down Bath Road from the Bowdoin College campus. The river is tidal, inhabited by lots of wildlife, and well protected for 1.5 miles downstream until it opens in stages to the North Atlantic starting at about 8 miles from the boathouse.

Smith House, which was dedicated on October 5, 2002, is complimented by a 110' long by 12' wide dock, which allows the launch or retrieve of five fours simultaneously.

To compliment their training on the water, athletes train indoors on Concept 2 ergometers in the club's training facility adjacent to the student union on campus.
