Getting fit, having fun, making mates, and winning races are what we're all about. Whether you're looking for an activity to keep you fit outside of work or one of your goals is to row for New Zealand one day, we'll help get you there. With our full-time Director of Rowing and our star volunteer coaches, we're here to support you along your journey.

We couldn't be here without the efforts of our volunteers. 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, including coaching, regatta officials, committee members, fundraising events, and more. When you join rowing, it's not just a sport, but a lifestyle. Come join our family of rowers.


We Care About Growing Rowing in Whanganui. 

Aramoho Whanganui Rowing Club has been around for over 100 years and has trained some of the best rowers in New Zealand. There is a wide range of people that you'll meet at our club, from students and young professionals to master novices and retirees. No matter your level of rowing, we always welcome newcomers to the club! 

We have a regular learn-to-row programme that takes place throughout the year for those keen to get into a boat. We have one for adults and another for students. Our student members at the club come from Whanganui High School and the Rangitikei district. We have two intakes every year for new groups of novices from these schools, and the intakes take place in February and September. 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.
