Nanaimo Rowing Club

Our clubhouse is located on Long Lake in Nanaimo, BC, where we are able to train almost year-round.  Our members range in age from 12-75 years old.  We have a strong group of competitive junior rowers and a small but enthusiastic group of masters (that's anyone over 21 years old!).

2015 Schedule of Events is now posted on the Regattas/Events page

Thanks to everyone that supported us in the Kraft Celebration Tour and TSN broadcast.  We are grateful to Kraft for awarding us $25,000 towards the new community boathouse and washrooms at Long Lake.

The Kraft Celebration Tour on August 16 was a huge success!  Thanks to all the club members and community for making it a great day. NRC also gained a couple of new supporters.

The BC Summer Games were held in Nanaimo, July 17-20. Thanks to all those that helped.
