First Annual (?) GRC Alumni Row


—Julie Horrocks

GRC alumni and current members gathered on Sunday for a celebratory row and social. Thank you to all the former members who came from near and far to rekindle memories and provide updates on their adventures. The group filled two 8s and a quad for a relaxing row on beautiful (if somewhat diminished) water. Thank you to the organizers for putting this great event together and we look forward to the next one.

This Could Be The Year You Learn to Row!

Have you ever thought you’d like to try the sport of rowing? Rowing is a whole body exercise that builds strength and aerobic capacity. It also provides great team experiences, opportunities for competition, and the pleasure of being on the water. Join us to experience this exciting and growing sport!

Guelph Rowing Club has opened registration for adult Learn To Row classes for summer 2016. Classes start at the beginning of June and we have lots of choices for times. You can find out more on the program page, or contact us by email if you have questions.
