Since 1891 the Garda Rowing Club has as its main objective that of spreading the practice of sailing, swimming and rowing on lake Garda and beyond; commitment recognised by the C.O.N.I. with the award of a gold medal for sporting merit. The racing teams over time have become the flagship, at present in fact, there are about 160 athletes registered in the swimming section, 25 athletes in the rowing section and 25 athletes in the sailing section. The excellent results have encouraged the commitment to organising courses for beginners and pre-competitive courses, to offer young people the opportunity to get close to these disciplines in close contact with the water. The rowing, sailing and swimming courses, are aimed in fact at the inclusion of children and young people in our competitive teams and pre-competitive groups. While training for sailing and rowing is held at the clubhouse, the swimming section athletes train at the Due Pini Municipal Pool instead, which for many years has been always managed by the Rowing Club. Starting from the opening of the covered facilities for swimming courses, many activities not necessarily related to a therapeutic or sportive purpose have subsequently been incorporated. The organisation of the events is therefore one of the main aspects that has contributed to the growth and development of the Club. If over the years the number of races and regattas scheduled in the year has remained fairly constant, we have tried instead to improve each time the quality of specific events, to the point of making them fixed appointments anticipated by the Garda athletes and not only that: especially with regard to the sailing section, the attendance of foreign crews are in fact frequent and numerous. In recent years, the Rowing Club has been particularly sensitive to some charity projects as well in order to promote a sporting culture accessible to everyone. The Garda Rowing Club is committed to properly maintaining its excellent tradition, thanks to the people who selflessly love sport and want to preserve the true values.
