Community Rowing of San Diego (“CRSD”)
The first rowing club in the United States, Narragansett Boat Club was founded in 1838. Fifty years later, the sport of rowing had spread all the way across the continent to San Diego, where in 1888 its first boat club was formed. Four years later its second club was formed.
In the intervening years, San Diego County’s population has increased 100 times, from just over 30,000 to over 3 million. But until 2012 and the formation of Community Rowing of San Diego, the number of rowing clubs remained unchanged.
