Briones Reservoir

Located over the Berkeley Hills in Orinda, the Briones Reservoir serves as the home of Cal men's and women’s crew. With its crystal clear water and limited boat traffic, Briones offers a beautiful escape while providing excellent training conditions 365 days a year.

The topography of the surrounding hills combined with the L-shaped body of water result in flat water conditions regardless of wind direction.
