Brief History of ARAE

In the year 1933, the ‘Amateur Rowing Association of the East’ was formed. The ‘Amateur Rowing Association of the East’ is an association of Premier Rowing Clubs situated in the Eastern Hemisphere. The British formed this association to kick start competitive rowing activity amongst all rowing clubs wherever they colonized.

The founder-members of the Association were The Bombay Gymkhana Club, The Calcutta Rowing Club, The Karachi Boat Club, The Madras Boat Club, The Rangoon Boat Club and The Royal Connaught Boat Club. There are today 17 member clubs spread across India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Singapore and an additional 17 affiliated clubs keenly involved with the sport.

Every year an annual rowing race is held by this association amongst all the affiliate clubs called the “ARAE Regatta” and it forms part of their racing calendar. Karachi Boat Club will play host to this year’s ARAE 2006.
