#Miles Make Champions!
#Fear the Hippo!
Welcome
The Intrepid Rowing Club (IRC) is located on the shores of the St Lucie River in Palm City, Florida.
 
Intrepid Rowing Club is a youth rowing organization focused on developing the skills and rowing knowledge of young men and women to enable them to compete victoriously on the national level. We train hard, six days a week, because we believe that miles on the water make champions. Off the water, we actively promote character building, integrity, and team work.  Resolute, fearless, fortitude, and endurance is the definition of  Intrepid. Fearless, daring, and bold - these are characteristics that our young men and women demonstrate every day, on every stroke, and lead to IRC's success.

IRC  also provides athletes, new to the sport, with opportunities to join its novice rowing and introductory/competitive sculling and sweep squads and to participate in summer Learn-to-Row camps.
