CIRA was established in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit with the purpose of providing a central resource for the various rowing organizations on the Cape and Islands. Our goal is to foster the growth of rowing, from Learn-To-Row and Recreational rowing to competitive Youth and Masters programs.
Our first action was to act as an "umbrella" organization for the five clubs the Cape, significantly reducing their annual liability insurance costs.
We expect that many other opportunities for cooperation and mutual benefits will be identified.
To promote and expand opportunities for youth and adults to row on Cape Cod and the Islands through various recreational and competitive rowing programs; to support the growth of the rowing community by encouraging collaboration and partnerships among existing and future clubs; and to oversee a centralized facility that will support the needs of these programs
