Rowing Victoria's History Project

February 2016

Rowing Victoria Inc commenced as a formal association in 1876. It is probably the oldest rowing association in the world. This year will be the 140th anniversary of its commencement.

A 10-year project has begun to have the full history prepared well in time for the 150th anniversary. This history will be a complete record of the 150 years and so is a massive undertaking. The appendices will be the focus in the coming years and will be a useful reference tool for rowers pending completion of the history in 2026.

The initial work undertaken to date is approximately 500 printed pages of materials so the finished work will be the equivalent of a multi-volume written history. Like the rest of this website, the history of Rowing Victoria is a massive historical resource.
