 The Detroit Boat Club Crew was founded in 1839, which makes us the oldest rowing club in North America!

We race within the Midwest Rowing Association, with over 80 schools and clubs, but have plenty of beginners and non-racing members too!    The mission of Friends of Detroit Rowing (our sponsor), is to educate and promote the sport of amateur rowing in the Detroit metropolitan community, provide competitive and recreational programs to men and women of all ages, and training opportunities for rowers competing on the national, international, and Olympic level.

Check out our programs and events, and if you enjoy rowing or
staying fit with friends,
Join DBCC today!!
