TCU Students are currently working to raise the funds for this Mid weight Bow Coxed 4+ (Named “RIFF RAM” : photo above). This is an ideal boat to help take both our men and women’s crews to the next level. FWRC has loaned us the $4,800 for the boat and we are trying to get this boat paid off As Soon As Possible. UPDATE: we have only $2,300 remaining to pay off the boat. We really need a Cox Box for the RIFF RAM. The Cox Box, cost $700 and is what the Coxswain uses it to communicate command to the rowers. It also has instrumentation on it which gives critical information, like boat peed and Stroke Rate (number of stroke Crew is taking every minute). Total remaining to pay off boat and purchase Cox Box is $3,000.

UT Austin Crew gave us a great deal on two “Coxed Four” that we can compete in. These boats are ideal for our growing club as they are one of the most popular College Shells to race.
TCU Rowing Club just picked up a Mid Weight 8+ and 4+. Plus 8 oars for a great price from SMU- thanks so much to Doug and his team. It’s really great how so many of our rival Universities are really helping our relatively new Club out. Rowing really does bring the best out in individuals as well as organizations.
We currently we are focus on the upcoming fall head race regattas. However we are concurrently looking at how best to grow the TCU Rowing Club both competitively and recreationally. Much of the Rowing Club growth depends on the rowing facilities we are in. We are looking at several options and will share those with you as we continue to develop our long term vision for the future. That vision however is only possible with your generous support.
So thank you so much for your donations.
