You are here: About ARC | Our Facilities
ARC is an urban rowing club and conducts its programs out of the City of Albany Boat Shed located near the public boat launch in the Hudson River Corning Preserve. The Boat Shed is under the elevated roadway of Interstate 787 and is managed by the City of Albany Department of General Services. This facility is bare bones basic with no amenities - but it is home to our teams, and ARC strives to do its part to maintain the facility and keep it clean and organized.
ARC shares the boathouse with several other rowing clubs including the Albany Irish Rowing Club and the Shaker Rowing Association. Boats and oars are stored on racks both inside the boathouse and out in the yard. Boat trailers, trucks and safety launches are all kept inside the locked fence of the boatyard.
ARC owns and maintains the floating docks at the Corning Preserve Boat Launch. Docks are free and open to the public. Read about the Dock Safety Project
Indoor Training Facility
Winter training takes place at our rented space on the first floor of 883 Broadway in Albany at the corner of Broadway and North Ferry Street. Enter through the side door on North Ferry Street. During the regular rowing seasons, this facility is used for indoor training when weather does not permit on-river rowing. The facility is also used for meetings and committee coordination.
