Columbia Rowing Club was founded in 1998 by Masters rowers (everyone above 21 years) who wanted to row as a club and advance the sport of rowing in the midlands of South Carolina.

CRC has a Youth Rowing program and hosts the USC Crew in addition to a recreational and competitive Masters rowing group. The club competes and travels to regattas in the southeast and has competed at Masters Nationals and World Masters. More information can be found here.

CRC members have a diverse rowing background from beginners to former collegiate rowers. We welcome new members through our Learn to Row program.

From our home on a secluded stretch of the Broad River, CRC launches from a donated EZ-Dock and owns shells ranging from singles to eights.

Weekly community rows occur Wednesdays evenings and Saturday mornings but members are welcome to row at their convenience. There is always a seat waiting for you!

Columbia Rowing Club is a 501(c)3 organization allowing us to accept tax deductible contributions for Youth Rowing and our other rowing education programs.
