The Atlanta Rowing Club has a fixed amount of rack space available for boat storage. Storage is prioritized for Club Boats, Member Private Boats and then 3rd Party Programs (schools, other clubs, etc.), and is reviewed annually in advance of the rack rental renewal cycle. Additional consideration is given to members who are active volunteering with the club - true givers!
The "Atlanta Rowing Club Private Equipment Storage Policy", acknowledged in the ARC Registration process, takes precedence over other references to Private Boat Storage. ARC reserves the right to update that document as needed.

Racks are assigned based on a wait-list via a right of first refusal approach, and first-in/first-out methodology. As racks become available, they will be offered to wait-list members in rank-order of the date requests were received. If a member declines a rack position because it does not meet their requirements, it will be offered to the next member on the list, etc.
For more details, see below, and please reference the wait-list page for instructions on how to make your interest known to ARC.
ARC rack rental rates are established based on benchmarking other clubs, and are set to help offset the cost of maintaining safe boat storage. ARC reserves the right to adjust Rack fees annually for the following rowing season.
Premium Storage: Racks that are located in the Upper Boathouse (UBH), Lower Boathouse (LBH) or Cage.
Trailer/Dedicated Racks: This is a single unit cost and includes the ability for the renter to store shells on the Trailer or Rack (no extra boat fees).
* Upon request, and subject to availability, members may request consideration for additional storage, but the additional shells will be located in a less desirable rack to preserve premium rack locations for actively rowed shells.
** Special approval needed. Larger boats are more challenging to rack and take up additional space, so must be approved by ARC.
*** Outside racks behind the UBH are reserved ARC fleet and for temporary storage for boat transition, not full-time storage.

Atlanta Rowing Club members owning their own shells can store their shells in one of our boathouses on a space-available basis. Storage will be prioritized for actively used rowing shells. Members wishing to store a shell at the ARC boathouse should register and pay for their desired storage location. Storage fees apply on an annual basis.
We maintain waiting lists for both new rack space as well as for better rack space. The allocation of rack space is handled by the Private Equipment Committee on Storage (PECS). If you want to put your name on one of those lists, please register your interest in the Wait List page by adding a comment in the blog expressing your interest.
Private blades may be stored at ARC with approval of the Club Manager. Private blades can be identified by the double red striping on the blade face. Some personal blades may also be painted with custom designs. ARC club blades will ALWAYS be painted with a single red stripe.
