Donate to EBR

East Bay Rowing was started by two crazy University of Miami grads, Deb and Pat Sullivan, who wanted to pass on their love of rowing to their community. According to them, when one drives down 114 and New Meadow Road, the Barrington river just shouts, “Row on me!”.  It took a gathering of people who shared their passion and, were willing to support them, to get EBR up and running.

When we attend a regatta and see our teams in blue and green on the water, we are so proud of the growth of the club and the number of rowers who now share our passion for rowing. We started in 2012 with 12 rowers in 4 singles. The spring of 2017, EBR seated 118 rowers and 17 boats! We are proud to represent the Greater East Bay Community.

As we grow, we continue to need additional boats, equipment and continual repairs. For example, an 8 person shell, used, costs between $15,000 and $25,000. A set of oars to move an 8 shell go for roughly $2800, or $350 per oar. Each seat costs $175. We keep our registration fees low to keep rowing accessible, but that means we have to raise funds.

We welcome any and all donations to East Bay Rowing. Money raised will go towards purchasing boats, docks, and other equipment needed to start classes. If you wish to donate equipment or volunteer your time, please contact us.
