Who are we?
Clam Island Rowing is a Kitsap County Parks and Recreation program that started in March of 2013. We run by volunteers and supported by the Kitsap Sailing and Rowing Foundation. Our mission is to teach rowing to the young and old, experienced and novice for fun, exercise and competition. Our name is from a little island in Dyes Inlet that only shows itself on very low tides.
Our Coach –John Lind rowed four years at the University of Washington, coached Frosh crew, and rowed two years at Long Beach in California. He coached at UCLA for about fourteen months before he began as coach for Loyola for the next twelve years.He returned to UW for five years as the first Intercollegiate Women’s Coach under Title 9.
Clam Island Rowing is Growing
Clam Island finished our Fall Season with seventeen rowers. We had a great season with three full boats. Our rowers were on the water four days a week. We also moved into our new Rowing Yard right next to the Port of Silverdale Offices in Old Town Silverdale. We are interested in growing and spent an afternoon at REI to spread the word about our organization. If you are interested in rowing or volunteering contact us. Even though we are not rowing in the winter, we are working out and working on projects.
