Columbia Rowing Club

Welcome to CRC

Flood Update: The boathouse was covered in about 8 feet of water Oct 4, 2015. The boats and trailer are as secure as possible. With more water from the upstate on the way, going near the boat house right now is unsafe. Stay tuned for more updates. On the water practices are cancelled until further notice. Safety first.
All club meetings are open and we invite

you to join us to learn more about rowing

in Columbia.

The next club meeting will be held on
Tuesday, October 20th
6:00 PM
Cafe Strudel
300 State Street, West Columbia

Community Rowing


The Masters part of our club is made up
of mostly scullers (singles and doubles 
rowers), but we do get in larger boats to
train for regattas, train new rowers and
for winter rowing.  The club has
"Community Row" every Saturday & Sunday
morning at 8:00 am (note time/day
adjustment for the hot weather). 

SAT July 25th at 8AM we had about
20 rowers on the water. Tim Stuart was

conducting a juniors summer rowing camp...

Thanks some much to Tim...

SAT & SUN at 8AM are a good time to get

to know other rowers... get into the  bigger
8's & 4's...

Maybe even prepare for some

upcoming regattas in the fall. 
We are shooting for having a  men's and women's 8
and or 4 at the Head of the South the 2nd weekend in NOV...

This fall we are looking into having a friendly
competition with the Augusta Rowing Club and
possibly go to another fall regatta...
If you are interested in rowing in a team boat,
