Who We Are
Oyster Bay Community Rowing (OBCR) is a 501(c)(3) designated charitable nonprofit public charity organization based in Oyster Bay, NY and was founded in 2017 by a group of volunteers passionate about the spirit of community and the sport of rowing.
What We Do
The purpose of Oyster Bay Community Rowing is to educate the community about the sport of rowing with the aim to grow and enhance the sport. The organization shall provide or assist in opportunities that will create environments and programs for which one can learn more about the sport. The organization operates to foster both national or international amateur sports competitions in the sport of rowing.
We are currently working toward building a community boathouse on the North Shore of Long Island, as well as operating the Syosset Rowing junior club team, for which participants attending ANY school, grades 6-12, are eligible to join.
Why We Do What We Do
Rowing is an optimal medium to foster and nurture community. We believe that there is a need for a community based and community spirit driven rowing program, not just for the few, but for the many, right here on Long Island.
