Palm Beach Rowing Association

The Premier  Rowing Club of South Florida

PBRA was incorporated as a not-for-profit Florida Corporation in January 1980, by a group of ex-collegiate rowers interested in competitive rowing.

In 1986, a vigorous fund raising campaign was undertaken by the founding members to finance the building of our boathouse.  The boathouse was erected on Lake Mangonia in cooperation with the City of West Palm Beach.

The boathouse is now leased from the City for an annual fee.


Since it's inception the club has been an enthusiastic competitor in major rowing competitions  within Florida and throughout  the country. We have sent crews to many of the National Championships, FISA and World Master's regattas as well as to the Henley Royal Regatta in England.

A list of our most notable medal wins can be found in the RESULTS page.
