The Adelaide Rowing Club is South Australia's premier rowing club. With over 150 actively participating members, it is also the largest rowing club in South Australia.
Affectionately known as ARC, the Club caters for rowers from a wide range of ages and varying levels of intensity and competition; from new rowers undertaking Learn-to-Row programs, social rowers, elite athletes representing state and country and masters rowers across all age categories.
Formed in 1882 on the banks of the River Torrensas the I'Zingari Rowing Club, the Club has had a rich and colourful past over its 130 year life-span. The Club's current boatshed on the River Torrens is the third edition, after the first and second sheds were destroyed by flood in 1889 and fire in 1931 respectively.
The Club operates from 2 facilities: the Torrens Lake boathouse and clubrooms, and a bay at the extensive RowingSA complex at West Lakes. ARC has an extensive fleet of boats spread over both locations, including 4 coxed eights, 3 coxless fours/quad sculls, 5 coxed quads and fours, 6 coxless pairs/double sculls and 12 single sculls.
