SDRC Today - working toward its NEXT 123 Years!
The San Diego Rowing Club's Resilient History is the FEATURE ARTICLE in a June 2011 edition of the Journal of San Diego History. That Article Launch Party on Sunday, June 5th was a memorable milestone for our City and rowing community.
Two days later, our venerable Club celebrated its 123rd anniversary!
This Club hosts visiting and long-term Club members from around the globe. Curent Masters hail from Japan, Scotland, England, Australia, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Guatemala, Chile and Argentina.
Our non-profit mission - to provide water safety and rowing instruction for youth is a driving principle of our Club's events and actions.
- We are extending Club outreach programs to inner-city youth and to wounded warriors and injured servicemen plus civilian challenged athletes.
- As a racing Club, our Juniors and Masters regularly compete at the national level. Masters often take advantage of the global reach of our "sport well oared" to also participate internationally in sanctioned regattas. Michael Welch brought home a FISA World 1st place medal (1X) from St. Catharine's CA last September. We also garnered two seconds and many third place finishes in this international competition!
Juniors from our Club have gone on to Olypmpic performances and a 1964 Silver Medal performance in Tokyo.
Most recently, two women alumni from our Juniors programs gained gold medals in the U-23 World Championships for Rowing. A young SDRC man went to Beijing in 2007 as a member of a Juniors National 4+ entry.
Our regular newsletters can be viewed at the facebook, twitter and webblog links on each webpage of our site.

As a rower said in "THE AMATEURS" (by David Halberstam):
"THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN ROWING:
BUT NOT MUCH!"
