Community Rowing Club is thrilled to be working with Macquarie University to see the Macquarie University rowing program restarted and for students and supporters alike to return to the water.
Since 2022, Community RC has been rowing from the John Lincoln Boat Shed, a community facility leased by Macquarie University, and the site of the Macquarie University Boat Club. As part of our involvement with the shed, we have committed to working with Macquarie to assist in providing a program for their students to learn to row and compete, with a view to us providing access to the water for people from all backgrounds. The university club has a long history at the boat shed, having previously rowed from the shed before the club’s closure in 2019.
We look forward to working in partnership with the university to reinvigorate and restart a rowing program which provides opportunities for students and alumni alike to get onto the water and competing as part of a broader community.
If you are a current or former student of Macquarie University, we’d love to have you aboard! Specific membership options for students and alumni for the 2023-2024 season are presently being finalised, but please check back soon for updates in this regard.
