Be sure to ask your rower what's going on with Crew - there are lots of things constantly happening! We try to post online and email but sometimes things slip through the cracks. If you ever have any questions, please contact us!
Mount Vernon Crew rows out of the Fort Belvoir Marina. The team would like to thank the Fort Belvoir Marina for their ongoing support and willingness to accommodate us. We would also like to thank our local community, Mount Vernon High School administration and our Athletic Director for their continued support of our program. To our coaches, parents, and families, we appreciate all the things you do and time you spend just to make it possible for us to row.
MV Crew is a high school rowing team in Mt. Vernon, Virginia. We have 50 team members - half are military dependents, and we row out of Ft. Belvoir Marina.
During last weekend's wind storm (March 2, 2018) we lost four boats to falling trees.
This is a catastrophic loss for the team.
Our annual operating budget is approx. $50,000, and we have not finished raising the costs of running the team for the year. The team must raise every dollar it spends -- we don't get any financial support from the high school or the county.
A new boat costs around $30,000, but we have never been able to afford new equipment. An acceptable used boat costs around $12,000. We have insurance, but the boats were old. Our coverage will allow us to buy one, and perhaps two used replacements.
The first regatta of the season is on March 24.
We need to raise enough money so that, with the insurance payout, we can buy at least two new (used) boats.
We rely on the support of our friends and neighbors in the community. Thanks for any help you can give!
