RowingChat with Masters Rowing Specialist, Marlene Royle
Marlene Royle was among the first coaches dedicated to masters rowing. Marlene’s coaching career began in 1982 with the Boston University Summer Recreational Rowing Program, a community sweep program on the Charles River. From 1986 to 2005, Marlene coached at the Craftsbury Sculling Center in Vermont and was the associate director for three years. From 2005 to 2009, Marlene was the head coach at the Florida Rowing Center in Wellington, Florida. In 2013 Marlene was the runner up for the USRowing Choice Awards Masters Coach of the Year.
In 1999, Marlene founded Roylerow Performance Training Programs to individually train rowers designing workouts and communicating via email. Roylerow.com was the first online coaching service for rowing. Shortly thereafter, her athletes started reaching the podiums of major regattas. Marlene’s coaching has produced numerous world masters champions, masters national champions, Head of the Charles winners, and personal bests. College coaches, pre-elite athletes, as well as, those training for general health, re-entering the sport after injury, or just starting to compete use her programs.
Marlene’s focus on RowingChat will be around master training and technique issues, as well as her approaches to teaching good technique in both sweep and sculling.

I get more info from Rowperfect than I do from National body which says one of two things …National body bit slack or Rowperfect is pretty good (i prefer this one myself!). My goal this year is to try to convince club to get Rowperfect ergo ..here’s hoping.” – Glenys, Bunbury Rowing Club, Western Australia
