Our Mission

Through rowing, CBRC builds community, confidence, and excellence.

Our Club

Commencement Bay Rowing Club is committed to serving the South Sound rowing community with the highest quality rowing programs. CBRC began with a single four-oared racing shell in 1992. We've grown to become one of the premier rowing clubs in the South Puget Sound area, offering programs for juniors (high school students), masters (post college), and sculling. Our goal is to provide the highest quality instruction and competition for rowers of all ages.

The CBRC boathouse is conveniently located south of Tacoma off I-5 on beautiful, tree-lined American Lake. The boathouse was built through the generosity of Tacoma area foundations, businesses, and individuals in support of youth and community rowing. We are located in Lakewood's Harry Todd Park. Since opening in 1997 the boathouse has been home to CBRC and collegiate crews from Pacific Lutheran University and University of Puget Sound. With four active boat bays, a work bay, and banquet and meeting facilities, this modern boathouse provides South Sound rowers with access to some of the best rowing water in the Northwest.
