Buffalo Bayou Boathouse
Our plans for Rice Crew include the development of a rowing boathouse within the Houston city limits. Despite a metropolitan area containing a population over 6 million, the closest boathouse to Rice, Bay Area Rowing Club in Clear Lake, requires a 62-mile, round-trip drive for each practice! This has been a huge sacrifice for Rice rowers since the team was founded at BARC in 1987. A boathouse on Houston’s Buffalo Bayou, only 7 miles away, cuts our students’ commute by 48 miles and over an hour (mainly due to avoiding the return in Rush Hour traffic) of valuable time that could be used for academic study. With 2-3 cars commuting for each practice, this move will save roughly $20 in gas for each practice. Most importantly, our students won’t be on the road at early morning hours, making the commute significantly safer.]]>
