Located on the western tip of Lake Superior, the Duluth Rowing Club is home to a thriving rowing program composed of both competitive and recreational crews. The club provides its members – youth, men, and women of all ages – with fun and fitness opportunities throughout the spring and summer months. The DRC is currently 150 active members strong and provides its members with equipment, coaching, and a place to row. DRC also sponsors a number of events during and after the rowing season for further fun and competition.
We offer programs for ages 13 to "as old as you are". Over 100 juniors participated last year, rowing in the Duluth International Regatta and as far away as Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada. In addition to the fun, competition, and camaraderie, each junior is eligible to qualify for a sports letter from their high school, a testimony to their commitment and effort as a team member.
The adult program is open to anyone over the age of 18. Every member is invited and encouraged to row in any regatta the Club enters regardless of skill level.
Both juniors and adults are expected to contribute 20 volunteer hours such as helping at the Duluth Regatta, opening and closing the boathouse, gardening, mowing, maintenance, etc.
This year we are lucky and excited to begin construction of a new boathouse and clubhouse, Having these facilities will dramatically improve the programming we can offer going forward.
