HUDSON RIVER ROWING ASSOCIATION 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.

Elizabeth and Ann work at Marist College where they have spent the past decade researching and documenting the Poughkeepsie Regatta for the Marist Archives and Special Collections. The resulting book is the first to take an in-depth look at the history of this sporting event during its over 50-year tenure on the Hudson River.
