Welcome to the Duluth Rowing Club

‘Tis the Season of Thanks and Giving

The Duluth Rowing Club wishes to thank the over 200 people who have make generous contributions to the capital campaign for the new Duluth Rowing Center. The Boathouse and Clubhouse buildings are completed except for a few finishing touches. However, there is still work yet to be done on the grounds work and landscaping.
