Founded in 1984 as the Organization of Adirondack Rowers and Scullers, the Albany Rowing Center (ARC) is located on the Hudson River in downtown Albany, and is committed to providing recreational and competitive rowing opportunities for both youth and adults. ARC is a not-for-profit organization that fosters interest in, and provides opportunity for, rowing in New York's Capital District. ARC rowers represent all ages (from middle school students on up) and a wide range of rowing abilities (from novice to experienced).
The mission of ARC is to stimulate and foster interest in the sport of rowing among amateurs; to publicize the benefits of rowing as a means of health and physical development; to uphold the principles and standards of amateur rule; and to promote interest in the sport of rowing through competition and the holding of regattas. ARC will use every reasonable means to advance and promote amateur rowing in accordance with the best traditions of sportsmanship, and will purposefully act to accomplish its mission.
Our boathouse is located in downtown Albany in the Hudson River Corning Preserve just north of the railroad bridge, at the Public Boat Launch.
