Halifax Rowing Club

Halifax Rowing Club (HRC) is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia on the beautiful Northwest Arm. The club is housed out of the historic St. Mary’s Boat Club. Rowing is part of an enduring and proud tradition in the City of Halifax and Nova Scotia. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, rowing races were held on the Northwest Arm, the Harbour and the Bedford Basin, with thousands participating in the tremendously popular sport. HRC hosts the annual The Cogswell/Pelham Harbour Race and Northwest Arm Regatta in September which will see its 150th running in 2017.

Halifax Rowing Club is home to the Dalhousie University Rowing Club. Dal Rowing Club is a member of the Canadian University Rowing Association (CURA) and competes in the Atlantic Rowing Championships and the Canadian University Rowing Championships every year.
