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. 

Chili Cook Off Winners!

This past Saturday was rainy and cold, not ideal weather for anyone on a crew team. It was ideal weather for chili however. There were twenty entries in our cook off from eight of our boathouse teams, each unique in its own way. Thank you to all who stepped up, entered their chili and explained their process to those who tried their chillis.

Our judges were varied and thorough. Thank you, Heidi, for inviting Dutchess County Sheriff Kirk Imperati, Town of Poughkeepsie Judge Craig Wallace and Chris O’Brien, chef and owner of Farm to Table Bistro in Fishkill. Craig is the parent of a former Spackenkill rower and Chris is the parent of a former Lourdes rower. They talked about the caliber of the chili entries and the difficulty in choosing winners for our categories. They were able to narrow it down.

The winners are:

Patrick McGuire from Lourdes / Best Overall

Cody Talbott from HRRA / Spiciest

Patrick Ladd from MHRA / Most Unique

In addition, the Most Popular vote was a tie between Patrick McGuire from Lourdes and John Boryk from FDR.
