was established in 1998 by a group of like-minded coaches that wanted to offer quality rowing opportunities to junior and adult rowers in the Hudson Valley.

More than 20 years later, HRRA has grown into the largest and most diverse rowing club on the Hudson. We have taught hundreds of people to row. Many of our junior and adult rowers have gone on to earn regional, national, and world championship medals.

We operate out of the Community Boathouse, a place that was built specifically to grow a greater community of rowers. It stands as one of the largest and most beautiful boathouses in North America and is home to seven scholastic and two club rowing teams in the Hudson Valley.

Boys in the Boat, the best-selling 2012 non-fiction book is about nine American men and their epic quest to win a gold medal in rowing at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The American run-off shell races (and all national championships) were held just north of our HRRA boathouse in Poughkeepsie. The movie version of the book will be arriving in theaters this December.
Check out The Boys in the Boat and other books on rowing at the library’s Big Read:

Boys in the Boat is the Poughkeepsie Library’s selection for their annual “Big Read” program.  Events are planned around the book including the author’s visit to Spackenkill High School on October 14.
