Lincoln University Rowing Club was re-established on campus in 2010 when a small squad of rowers headed to Dunedin and the NZ Universities Rowing Champs at Lake Waihola. From here the club has grown over the years to around 40 members who compete annually at the Aon University Rowing Champs.
The New Zealand University trials are held concurrently with the regatta and rowers have the opportunity of selection into the Trans-Tasman University squad as well as the New Zealand Universities team.
In 2014 Lincoln University Rowing Sports Scholar, James Moody, was selected to compete at the 13th World University Rowing Championships held at Le PAarc des Rives de l’Aa, in France. In 2016 Lincoln University Rowing Sports Scholar, Sam Bosworth won a gold medal in the Men’s U23 Coxed Four at the World Rowing U23 Championships near Rotterdam.
LU Rowing is affiliated with the Canterbury Rowing Club and comes under the banner of LU Sport.
