[support DRC]
Boat Dedications are one of the great ways to support Duwamish Rowing.

Our Support


DRC is a mostly volunteer club. Our coaches do get paid for their coaching time, however; administrative work, boat maintenance and repair, boathouse maintenance, launch maintenance, outreach etc. are the responsibility of the club at large.

Rowers Pitch In

Each member of DRC must sign up for at least one of our volunteer committees when they join DRC. We ask that all of our members including our youth rowers and their parents get involved with volunteering with the club in some way, particularly with our fundraising.


We hold a DRC fundraiser each year, where we try to bring community together for fun & education as well as raising support. Past events have included a movie & chili feed at the Duwamish Long House, and a BYO-Vinyl DJ night with a talk by former UW rowing coach Bob Ernst.

We are always looking for supplies. Things like donated food and drink, event supply rentals, boating safety gear, maintenance supplies, and more. Please check in to see what we need coming up, or let us know if you have something to offer!

Boat Dedications

One wonderful way to make a lasting contribution is with new equipment. We can honor you by naming a boat after you. Please contact us to discuss our current needs at rowdrc@gmail.com.


Boat House

Since 2011, DRC has operated out of a shed and two shipping containers on a loaned driveway pad. We are currently on the hunt for a new, permanent home on the banks of the Duwamish. If you have any leads or can lend a hand, please let us know!
