The success of the Princeton National Rowing Association since its inception in 2000 has been clear. It has developed and expanded rowing programs on Mercer Lake for masters and junior rowers and is the host base for the U.S. National Team.

Twice in the last five years – 2011 and 2015 – the New Jersey club has been voted USRowing’s Club of the Year. Though PNRA suffered the loss of Dr. Tim Hosea, who was in every way a mainstay in the long-term development of the organization for its beginnings.

This year should see more of the same success from PRNA, which is scheduled to host not only the wide variety of collegiate, junior, club and national team selection events it normally runs, but also the 2016 USRowing Youth National Championships.

But a major part of what is set to take place is the expansion and future development of the Caspersen Rowing Center, a project Hosea was fully involved in.

“One of the last projects Tim was working on was the expansion of the boathouse. It was begun under his leadership,” said PNRA executive director Kris Grudt. “We’re looking at expanding the boathouse and adding much needed indoor workout space. We have the beautiful course, we have the boat bays, but we really are lacking on the indoor workout space.”

Listen to an interview with Grudt at the 2015 USRowing Annual Convention as he talks about PNRA’s past successes and plans for the future of rowing in Mercer County, New Jersey. To see the boathouse development plans, go here.
