About

The Rondout Rowing Club is a not-for-profit, member supported,  volunteer organization dedicated to community rowing as well  as the promotion and support of water sports on the Hudson  River and Rondout Creek. The Club was formed in 1999 by new and experienced rowers who wanted to bring rowing to the community. It has roughly 50 members, with all abilities  from novice to intermediate and advanced rowers. A truly   multi-generational sport, our rowers span from age 12 to 80+!!! Some members row almost every day in the spring and summer and into the fall. Rowers enjoy the exercise, camaraderie, and incredible scenery of the Rondout Creek and Hudson River, Kingston Lighthouse, and Kingston-Rhinecliff  Bridge.

The Club also sponsors the local  Kingston High School Crew Team, whose students learn focus, responsibility and integrity in being part of a rowing crew. The crew competes with many high schools on the  Hudson River and in the Hudson Valley Rowing League throughout April and May.
