We Care About Growing Rowing in Whanganui. 

Aramoho Whanganui Rowing Club has an active membership of over 100 rowers aged from 13 to late '60s.  Our membership is drawn from Whanganui High School students and the local community.

The Aramoho Whanganui Rowing Club teaches the sport of rowing, offering its facility to all sectors of the community.  A broad selection of new 'Novices' join annually, usually from the school sector, and are nurtured through the grades to senior level and even to national selection. They develop not only the ability and technique of how to row but excellent training and work ethic. The teamwork, club spirit and camaraderie that comes from this stay with them through a lifetime.  The club has structures in place for those who wish to achieve elite sporting excellence and for those who wish to take part on a purely recreational level.  Its aim is that all and any who wish to take part in the sport of rowing, at whatever level be encouraged and made welcome.  Our efforts are supported by a strong rowing school parents support group which draws and encourages the support of our member’s families into the sport in a number of ways, coaching, regatta officials, committee members, fundraising events, etc.


Not only do we have one of the best training rivers in New Zealand, but we also have great equipment, coaches, and people.

What more could you ask for?

The Club not only achieves high accolades in the sport of rowing, but it also has an active input and profile in our community.  Taking part in local events, the Club hosts RNZ Coaching Courses, Water Safety Course for new rowers, run a learn to row programs and a very successful “Business House Challenge” putting another dimension to the club’s community involvement where corporate teams are coached over 8 weeks and compete at a mini regatta celebration at completion.
