Continuing in 2018 is RMIT's affiliation with the Richmond Rowing Club! We established this partnership because students were looking for a way to row in their time as an RMIT student. Now you can! Rowing for Richmond Rowing Club means you have full access to all of the member benefits as a Richmond Rowing Club member, but at a discounted rate!

Richmond Rowing Club is a vibrant, friendly, community based club located centrally in Melbourne - just near Flinders Street Station. The club was established in 1863, and is one of the oldest in Melbourne.
