Club Culture & Vision

Ross Rowing Club had it’s beginnings in 1870 when a group of like minded souls decided to form a rowing club. Meetings were held in the local pub, the Hope and Anchor, and it wasn’t until 1908 that we could boast a boathouse. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since those days and we are currently enjoying an upsurge in fortunes in all disciplines, age and gender.

The key to our club success is to ensure “we enjoy the Journey”.  As a club we have strong values enshrined in developing a Club spirit that binds us together. That means never letting the performance goals we wish to attain be achieved at the expense of Club spirit.  This philosophy coupled with the Vision to create an environment where success is inevitable means Ross is developing a World Class environment to enjoy rowing.

We are a happy club and all sections work well together conscious that we are One Club who benefit from good club spirit. The rewards are obvious.
