Florian is an experienced excellent couch. The rowing facility is clean and adheres to all the COVID protocols. The water is wide and flat. Highly recommended this site for a fantastic rowing experience.

Both of our kids transferred to Star Rowing from another club. Coach Florian has done an excellent job at teaching them advanced techniques and focusing their drive to yield lower split times. His Olympic pedigree shows everywhere from work ethic to results on the water and even his popularity when walking through regattas. The culture at Star Rowing is a combination of safety, precision and achievement delivered in a fun family atmosphere on one of the best stretches of water in CT. What else can I say - were thrilled to be at Star and our kids love it!
