This is an informal meeting for all those who are members, want to be members, friends, people who like rowing in the morning and those who like the afternoon. This is an informal gathering and a way for all of us to get together. You are welcome to bring friends spouses significant others etc…
We may have a short presentation on some aspect of rowing, conditioning, nutrition etc… (we are still trying to figure out what)
This is something we are going to try and do on a monthly basis at various establishments around Poulsbo. In the future we hope to have coaches from other clubs show up and give us a few pointers. We also want to reach out to other people in the rowing/fitness community and hope to have other presentations on training, nutrition etc..
Swing by have a beer, some hot wings (not nutritious but delicious) and enjoy the company of your fellow rowers.
Spring has sprung and KRA crews are rowing on beautiful Liberty Bay in Poulsbo! Nearly every day you can see our 8-oared or 4-oared shells gliding through the waters of the bay, coxswains shouting commands & coaches following in safety launches with plenty of advice.
The Spring Learn to Row classes filled up fast and 24 new rowers got to try their hands (literally!) behind an oar. Many of these new rowers have now joined KRA and are filling out even more crews.
KRA’s Spring Quarter begins on June 1, so if you are thinking about joining, this is a great time to get involved!
Stay tuned for news about our move to the Port of Poulsbo dock in June!
Hope to see you on the water soon!
The best party of the year is right around the corner.

With the help of two great membership work parties, we are nearly ready to start rowing on Liberty Bay! The new rack is built and most of the shells have been cleaned and prepped for Spring rowing!
Our Coaches are busy working on putting together crews for the 2013 Spring Season, so it’s not too soon to turn in your Membership Application or Renewal. The KRA Membership Forms are now available on the website.

This is our annual meeting. If your not a member but intersted in learning more or becoming a member, please join us. If you are a member, we will be discussing the general status of the organization, electing board members, voting on issues such as dues and discussing upcoming regattas and events. Come and let your voice be heard!
WOW! What an exciting year for rowing in Kitsap county. A little of a year ago a small group of people based in Indianola were given a rowing shell and 4 oars. (Thank you Bainbridge Island Rowing!!!!)
We learned to row, and went to our first Regatta, the Greenlake Frost Bite. People noticed and we grew. We grew enough to out grow our Indianola home. We rowed the summer and fall at Port Gamble. (Thank you Olympic Resources!!!!) But Port Gamble is not a good year round place to row.
We are now moving to Poulsbo and will be rowing Liberty Bay. We’ve decided to change our name from Indianola Rowing Association to Kitsap Rowing Association. All of this takes time though. Making a website is lower on our list than rowing. So until we do, you can find more information at our old website:
