Tiger Navy 50th Anniversary Fund

Help The Marietta High School Tiger Navy Raise Money for New Docks!

On Friday, January 12, 2018, the Tiger Navy suffered a huge setback when river flooding combined with ice flow carried away our 180’ dock. Unfortunately, they could not be recovered and were not covered by insurance. The cost to reconstruct the docks is approximately $30,000. The Marietta community, its businesses, residents and rowing alumni have always been a great support to the Tiger Navy/HRC and now we need your support more than ever. We are a 501©3, not-for-profit association and donations are tax deductible.


The Harmar Rowing Club, Inc. and Marietta High School Tiger Navy invite the community to “Join the Celebration” of the fiftieth anniversary of rowing at Marietta High School. Our first teams took to the water in spring 1964 to compete against other local teams and soon thereafter were competing successfully on a national level. Initially, this was a boys’ only sport, but in 1976 girls were added and the sport mushroomed into one of the most popular amateur high school and collegiate sports in the world. Marietta’s program has grown apace with the growth of rowing and we continue our tradition of boating competitive crews. Literally thousands of youth and their families have contributed to and benefited from the Marietta rowing experience these fifty years with second and even third generation rowers now enjoying their time on the water.

Our celebration begins now and continues through the Spring 2014 racing season with the big party centered around the annual Lindamood Cup high school regatta next April. We are planning a host of activities for the anniversary and we welcome any and all of our friends, families, community members and alumni to join us in the festivities. This is a celebration for all of Marietta as we gather together to reminisce, laugh and share our stories. We’re also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us make the party a roaring success. Email us at tigernavy64@gmail.com for more details.  Stay tuned for more updates on the fun and “Join the Celebration!”

We are accepting donations to enhance and update the equipment in order to keep our rowers on a level playing field with other teams.  We have a goal of raising $100,000 over a 3-year period.  Thank you and we hope this is the beginning of another wonderful 50 years of rowing at Marietta High School!
