About

Kelowna Rowing Club (KRC) is a non-profit society. The club owns a small fleet of single (1x), double (2x), and quad (4x) sculling shells (boats), ergometers for off-water training, as well as a motorized coach boat and the necessary equipment used to operate rowing programs, such as oars, life jackets and other safety aides. All boats are stored outside on racks and rowers load boats from the beach (known as wet-launching) as KRC does not currently have access to a boat house or dock.
