About Us

As recent alumni and legacy rowers of UCSB, the founding five members of the Santa Barbara Rowing Foundation (SBRF) were challenged by the founders of rowing in Santa Barbara to organize and motivate our generation to begin providing for the needs of the local rowing community. The SBRF is the genesis of that challenge and it strives to pursue the mission established by the founding five members to bring together the Santa Barbara rowing community by hosting and organizing community events, offering grants to local teams, and sponsoring the regattas that provide racing venues for Santa Barbara-based teams.

As a group, we look forward to building new relationships and ensuring that the next generation has the opportunity to participate in a sport that has provided us with life-long friends, athletic accomplishment, and many of life’s important lessons. We hope that you join us!
