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.
This season at Adelaide Rowing Club we have a strong Junior and U21 development squad who are coached by the Ron Mobbs. Ron is an experienced coach, having coached at SASI and the Junior World Championships in 2005 and 2011.
There is a broad contingency of Adelaide Rowing Club members having made state teams across all age groups, and those that are SASI athletes. We hope to continue this in the coming season.
We also have regular training sessions for grade rowers and club athletes at our Torrens Boat Shed. At the Adelaide Rowing Club we know how to balance athleticism with fun and have a squad to fit all abilities.
Our Senior A Australian reps this year are Olympia Aldersey (St Peters Girls) who won Bronze in the Women’s Double at the World Championships, Molly Goodman (Wilderness) who placed 10th in the Women’s 8 and Alex Hill (PAC) who placed 7th in the Men’s 8. In 2013 Bryn Coudraye competed in the Men’s Pair at the World Championships with Murray Bridge rower James McRae.
In the 2014/15 season we look forward to boating some competitive crews at all regattas!
