The 2018 USRowing Club National Championships will be held July 11-15, 2018, on the Cooper River in Camden, New Jersey.
The USRowing Club National Championships, which feature racing in the under 17, under 19, intermediate, and elite/senior categories, have seen significant growth over the past several years and have become one of the largest summer regattas in the country. The 2017 event broke the organization’s all-time participation records with nearly 1,700 crews competing over five days.
The Cooper River venue is currently undergoing different phases of improvements, and we look forward to showcasing these upgrades to the rowing community.
Jamie Stack, Camden County Boathouse Manager
USRowing is excited to return to the Cooper River in 2018. The venue has a history of hosting large events, both in scale and stature, so we are very confident in the local organizing committee’s expertise in hosting events of this caliber.
