Learning More about Rowing
Rowing is one of the original Olympic sports of the modern games. Crews of between one and eight rowers compete in a variety of events, with the big eight boats drawing the largest crowds. CBC is fortunate to have three Olympians who have been associated with our boat club (Caryn Davies, Andrew Byrnes and Jake Cornelius)
Rowing has a long history in Ithaca. Cornell's first team was established in 1873, eight years after the university's founding. CBC shares the Inlet with nationally ranked crews from Cornell University and Ithaca College. Collegiate crews can be seen practicing during the fall and spring seasons in the late afternoons and early mornings.
