OIR is an active rowing club located on beautiful Orcas Island in San Juan County. We have a boathouse and train on Cascade Lake in Moran State park. It can be a stunningly beautiful place to be. We offer a competitive rowing program for high school and junior high age students. There are two seasons, a Fall season starting in September and finishing in November and a Spring season starting in February and ending in May.

We also have a small but active and growing adult rowing program. We encourage experienced rowers and beginners to get in touch.

Rowing is an excellent sport. It uses and develops all of the major muscle groups in your body. Rowing is THE team sport. Rowing is an intellectual challenge, you can spend a lifetime in search of the perfect stroke. Once you are a rower you will be a part of a world wide family and be welcomed by rowers everywhere. If you join OIRA you will become part of a tight knit family and learn how to function as part of a fun and effective team.

Our wish list is always long and our funds are short. We would appreciate any help. Please consider helping out our wonderful program. If you want to send us money or have equipment to donate contact us via email, phone or snail-mail. You can also donate money safely online via PayPal using your PayPal account or major credit card. OIR is a WA state based 501c3 non profit organization.
