The Corvallis Rowing Club (CRC) is a non-profit Masters rowing club based in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. It was established in 1993 by local rowing alumni with a mission to provide rowing education, enjoyment, and fitness in a team-oriented atmosphere for people of Corvallis and surrounding communities.


The club is comprised of about 50 members, including men and women ranging in age from 21 to over 70. Rowing skills range from novices to highly experienced gold medalists. We compete in local and regional Masters regattas and several at the national level. Individual goals vary from aggressive training and serious competition to those who row to stay fit and active.


CRC owns a fleet of eights, fours, and a quad, including oars, cox boxes, and other support equipment. Several members own personal singles and doubles. Through a partnership agreement with Oregon State crew, the club trains on the Willamette River out of the OSU Rowing Center which is located on the east bank of the river (left at the light immediately after crossing the Harrison Street Bridge).
