Since 1988, Capital Rowing Club has earned its spot as the premier rowing club in Washington DC, providing leadership and athletic opportunities to a wide variety of individuals. In the past thirty years, Capital has grown from a small boathouse located under the 11th St Bridge to a large community comprised of high school rowers studying in DC public schools, adaptive rowers overcoming physical challenges to row, and a vibrant Masters program of adults enjoying the sport and camaraderie of their teammates. While the pandemic hit our club financially, it strengthened us in our core values as we adapted our procedures to provide a safe environment for outdoor physical activity and social interaction.

As we establish the “new normal,” Capital Rowing Club has grown in size and strength inspiring competitive rowing, youth and adult fitness, and a hefty dose of friendship. Thank you for supporting our unique community proudly located on the Anacostia River.
