Since 1995, The Rower’s Almanac and Boathouse Finder have published the most comprehensive directories and information on rowing clubs in over one-hundred countries - including clubs, colleges, junior teams and high schools, associations, rowing businesses, coaches and referees.
The Rower’s Almanac published its first print edition in 1996. Limited print editions are still available for purchase by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The last edition of The Rower’s Almanac was printed in 2008. After that time, The Rower’s Almanac published all its rowing organization information on the Boathouse Finder website.
Boathouse Finder is the largest rowing organization map search of its kind. Those new to the sport, or rowers who travel frequently can easily locate a rowing club within their vicinity. The data is primarily kept up-to-date by the organization or club itself; users are asked to update their organization information semi-annually. Users can now upload a boathouse photo and set their boathouse or club latitude and longitude coordinates.
The Rower’s Almanac and Boathouse Finder was started by Karen Derringer, a former University of Washington rower, elite-level sculler, and four-time U.S. National Champion. Karen now rows recreationally on the Potomac River in Washington, DC and maintains Boathouse Finder in her spare time. Karen is a graduate of the University of Washington, Seattle and American University with degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Business.
