town lake ladder

About The Ladder

Town Lake Ladder is a sculling time trial that starts at the finish line of the Heart of Texas course (near the I-35 bridge), proceeds east around Bird Island, and finishes at the same finish line of the Heart race course.

We have set up the course intentionally to go up and back along that section of the Lake, in order to equalize the wind and current conditions by traveling in both directions.

Who can race
The race is open to all rowers on Lady Bird Lake but is only for singles, no team boats are allowed.

Members of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. Many people have rowed the Ladder in Maas Aeros and then, as their skill levels increase, they have repeated the Ladder in faster shells.

To compete in the Ladder, meet west of the I-35 bridge. If more than one person wants the same boat, as is usually the case, then we will run several flights of boats so that everyone gets the hull they want.

Ladder Results
The listing below shows all of the current best scores for each person that has rowed in the ladder. The results are sorted so that men and women are grouped separately and the fastest times are listed first.
