Since 2001 Bainbridge Island Rowing has been growing a multi-generational Kitsap County rowing community from our home base at historic Eagle Harbor. Our mission is to build community through rowing. BIR supports the attainment of recreational, fitness and competitive rowing goals for all by providing outstanding coaching, equipment, and facilities in a friendly, collaborative, and social setting. Since the beginning, we have helped change hundreds of lives through the positive physical, psychological, social, and sporting impact of rowing. BIR does this by introducing the public to the sport through “Learn to Row” and provides programs throughout the year for high school students and adults for recreational and competitive rowing locally, regionally, and nationally.
