We’re here to get you out on the water on people-powered boats and boards. Come to us for boating and social events, summer camps, races…. Join us on “Sonoma County’s Longest Park”: the Petaluma River. Visit our Facebook page , find information on The Floathouse, a board and boat rental center planned for Petaluma’s turning basin, and look into plans for a 2nd facility, the Community Boathouse downriver. Let’s make every day “A Day on The River”!
The Petaluma River Marathon/Half-Marathon is held on the Sunday before Labor Day at the North Bay Rowing Club at Foundry Wharf, 625 2nd Street, Petaluma. Afterwards, finishers receive medals and share in a potluck picnic on the grassy area behind Foundry Wharf.
With a whole week off of school, the kids are going to want some quality outdoor time, and what better way to get it than renting a boat or board from our partners, Clavey Paddlesports and Petaluma SUP. Of course, when The Floathouse is up and running, you’ll be able to rent an even wider variety of water craft, and get out much more easily from our safe low docks. How about donating today to help us build it?
Come one, come all, and paddle or row off those extra calories! A 1k course will be set up between the North Bay Rowing Club docks and the 101 bridge, so you can compete against others in solo human-powered water craft. Boat or board, doesn’t matter. Bring a dish to share for the potluck afterwards. Registration opens at 8:45 am. Teams assigned and skippers’ meeting around 9:30 am. Results announced at noon during potluck and boat demo. Rain OK, but high winds cancel. $10 with a potluck dish to share.
