Lake Sunapee Rowing Club

Lake Sunapee Rowing Club (LSRC) provides rowing opportunities to all members of the community surrounding Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire. Founded in 2007, LSRC is dedicated to providing rowing opportunities for individuals of all ages, abilities and experience. LSRC also partners with New England Handicapped Sports Association (NEHSA) to provide adaptive rowing opportunities.

The sport of rowing is a non-impact activity that involves all of the major muscle groups and can be enjoyed life-long. Rowing provides physical fitness, enhances skills in teamwork and leadership, requires and improves mental discipline, and crew members enjoy great camaraderie.

Annual Gala and Silent Auction

All LSRC Rowers (present, past and future) and friends are invited to celebrate another successful season on the water, and to join us for a great evening of food, fun and fundraising.

Saturday, November 15 at 5:30 p.m.
at the Wilmot Community Association’s Red Barn

Bring your friends and an appetizer, salad or dessert to share. The committee will supply entrees and drinks but we won’t protest if you offer to bring some wine.

A donation of $10 would be appreciated. Door prizes will also be awarded.

We will again have many marvelous items and services donated by local merchants and friends of the club. Watch our Facebook page for auction item listings.

This year we have some exciting items to bid on:

  • A condo in Kauai, Hawaii for a week
  • Juggling lessons with Rich Brown
  • Dinner on Great Island which includes a fantastic motorboat ride and a history lesson about the early families who vacationed there
  • Two tickets to A Christmas Carol at Northern Stage
  • A day sail on Lake Champlain
  • LSRC clothing
  • and much more

We also have room for donations from club members. Contact us if you have something for our auction listing. These items could be a vacation home, tickets to a show or a game, homemade dinner or brunch, a special trip or guided hike, a basket of related items or a unique piece of artwork. Contact us if you have something for our auction listing.

Our fundraiser supports our scholarship fund, our adaptive program and equipment upgrades.

Please join us on November 15!

Since 2008, several hundred people have participated in rowing in the Lake Sunapee area thanks to LSRC programs. Current membership consists of approximately 75 members ranging in age from 12 to 70+ and LSRC is led by an active eight-member volunteer Board of Directors.

During the 2010 season the club purchased a quad which is a boat for four scullers (rowers using two oars each.) Lake Sunapee Bank sponsored the club by paying for the purchase of four sets of sculling oars and for the painting of the quad. Along with the quad, the LSRC board has increased our fleet to include a number of beginner and advanced singles and doubles which are available for sculling lessons or daily use. The club also entered the quad in the Methuen City Sprints Regatta.

Funding for Lake Sunapee Rowing Club comes from member fees, donations, and fundraising activities. Donations are accepted at any time using Paypal.
