With our knowledgeable coaches, well maintained plant, and passion for the sport we provide a team building experience like no other! 

Rowing has a proud place in New Zealand sporting History, and following the sports exponential growth over the last decade, Canterbury Rowing Club is giving you the opportunity to see what all the fuss is about. Through our Corporate Rowing Challenge you have the opportunity to develop an environment of camaraderie, team work, trust, and a strong sense of company pride as your team work together to towards becoming the fastest CRC Corporate Rowing Crew of 2017.
