The URI Men’s Crew team has rich tradition of excellence producing several Olympic and world champion athletes, as well as several of today’s top coaches. The team competes primarily in New England against club, and varsity programs. Major regattas include The head of the Charles, the New England Championships, ECAC / NIRC, ACRA’s, and the occasional trip over the pond for the Henley Royal Regatta in England. The team rows, and trains on an off campus facility that it manages and has a fleet of Resolute Eights, and Fours.
