Calm Waters Rowing

Calm Waters Rowing celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2020!

Happy 2024!
While we ease into retirement, we’re not completely giving up on coaching.

We would like to do more traveling with the idea being that we’ll come directly to your club; easier and less expensive for you and more fun for us. The parameters for the clinic can be whatever works best for the clinic participants. We coach sweep as well as sculling, team boats as well as singles.

We’re also not entirely giving up on offering sessions here in Virginia on our private, protected mill pond. You’ll need to set up your own group of 4 to 8 people (no individual reservations, sorry) and again, we can work with you on how best to configure the session – that would include length of the session as well as how many rows per day.

Email is the best way to get in touch with us to check availability and to configure a clinic which will work best for you, either at your club or here in VA.

Looking forward to hearing from you and doing more coaching!



It's a vacation. It's a camp. It's all that and more. Calm Waters Rowing is a full-service sculling camp vacation that caters to the master rower. But whether you're a beginner, recreational rower, or experienced racer, we'll design a program to fit your needs.

Our elite coaches, Charlotte Hollings and John Dunn, have more than 70 years combined experience. They'll work one-on-one with you to help you develop and improve your rowing technique.

Calm Waters Rowing is based at the former Inn at Levelfields. As one of the last antebellum mansions to be built in the Commonwealth of Virginia, it represents the final expression of the authentic hip-roofed Georgian colonial style.
