Who We Are & Our Mission
Delta Sculling Center provides access to fitness, health, leisure and recreation on the California Delta through the inclusive sport of sculling among all people, whether they are able-bodied or have a disability. We acknowledge that the ability-disability distinction is not two extremes; we all have some disability and some ability. We make sculling available to everyone, regardless of physical, cognitive and sensory/perceptual challenges. We adapt our boats and equipment to fit the needs of individuals so that everyone can participate. We want to support everyone, no matter what motivation brings them to us, for example, those who want to become more fit, regain/improve health, find a new sport, enjoy the Delta, train for competition, improve their sculling technique, or find an adaptive sport.
"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." - John Wooden
SCULLING: WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE? Using two oars in symmetrical strokes, the sculler "uses almost every muscle in the body, in most cases through the full range of movement ... does so with less cyclic movements per minute than virtually any other aerobic exercise, resulting in less wear-and-tear on the body," and "Although the muscle contractions are often at or near maximal, no gravity shocks the spine, hips, knees or ankles" (quotations from Rowperfect's Indoor Sculler instruction manual). It is also a physical and spiritual meditative practice in which, as Andy Baxter wrote in Racing Yesterday, "I empty myself, get out of my own way, so that I can be open to anything and everything free of limitation.... rowing is everything that makes life worth living, an epic odyssey lurking just beneath the surface of something so simple as moving a boat over water."
Duke Finally Gets in His Kaschper Racing Shell
Duke began sculling only in January 2013. He's a natural! So natural that just about a month ago, so passionate about sculling, he purchased himself a used Kaschper single racing shell. He's finally been able to get himself into his shell, held back by a surgery. As soon as he is completely healed, nothing will stop him! Watch out sculling world - here comes Duke!

Take W. March Lane as far as you can, driving west, until it changes name and becomes "Buckley Cove Way." It leads to Buckley Cove Park and its public docks. There you will encounter a guard station. Once you go through the station, follow the road as it bends to the right into RiverPoint Landing Marina & Resort. Go past the marina office on the right. The road ends and you can only turn right or left. Turn right and go to the last set of storage bays. We are located in Bays 20 & 19. Park in the parking spots on the left next to the private docks.
