WRC Alumni Programme
To all former oarsmen and oarswomen of the Wellington Rowing Club If you are a former Schools, University, Novice, Club or Masters rower and enjoyed rowing as part of the Wellington Rowing Club community, then we would like to invite you to become an Alumni member.
If you are a recently retired member or someone of advancing age but still young at heart, then the following is a way of retaining an active interest in the goings-on of the Wellington Rowing Club and being recognised as a valued Alumni member.
WRC was nominated as the New Zealand Rowing Club of the year in 2016. This major achievement recognises the standing that we have across the New Zealand rowing community as well as the high rowing standard we set on-the-water. In addition, our crews are enjoying considerable success in regional and national regattas at all levels.
As you will undoubtedly know, we rely on a large volunteer community who work very hard to ensure WRC rowers achieve success on the water, in spite of the challenges faced with water conditions on the harbour. We have a number of active fund raising initiatives during the season, as part of trying to keep the financial burden on active rowers as reasonable as possible. However, this approach does not fund boats and other needed equipment that is needed for club with a strong future.
By joining the Alumni programme, you will be actively contributing to the future success of the club and at the same time enjoy some rather unique benefits.
