The New Haven Rowing Club (NHRC) is a nonprofit rowing organization located in Oxford, Connecticut, on the Housatonic River. The purpose of the NHRC is to encourage and promote the sport of amateur rowing among men and women both nationally and internationally by providing rowing programs and instruction, and by maintaining a boathouse and rowing equipment for its members.
Founded in 1970, the NHRC has nearly 100 members of all ages. Currently, men represent about 60% and women 40% of our total membership. We have a beautiful two-bay boathouse with complete locker-room facilities, a spacious clubroom, and a weight room with ergs.
Our Club is well known in the US and internationally. NHRC rowers have won medals at major regattas such as the Head of the Charles, the US Masters National Championship Regatta, the San Diego Crew Classic, and many others.
NHRC contributes to the community in a variety of ways, including: supporting competitive rowing, organizing amateur regattas, and promoting stewardship of the Housatonic River Valley.
The NHRC welcomes new members who are experienced sweep rowers or either experienced or novice scullers. For more information, visit our Membership page.
