Georgia Tech Crew was officially founded in 1986, and has since grown from a team of four to a team of 90+ athletes, making it the largest club sport at Georgia Tech. The team is also one of the most successful organizations at Georgia Tech, consistently earning medals at the Dad Vail and ACRA national championship regatta for more than 12 years in a row.

On Monday, January 5th Rob Canavan resigned from his position as head coach and varsity men’s coach of the Georgia Tech Crew Team.
Coach Rob brought heart to the team. His dedication, his sacrifices, and his unwavering faith in his rowers have allowed us to not only survive for 21 years but also thrive. He provided the stability a once-small club team needed to become one of the most successful college rowing programs in the south. It has now reached the age were we can confidently allow Coach Rob to tackle new challenges in the rowing world, while we diligently continue to show others the strength in his teachings.
For the remainder of this season, Coach Jay Skuban will carry out the administrative duties of Head Coach, with Coach Chase Powell and Coach Ben Loeffler instructing the varsity men.
From the eternally grateful GT Crew family, farewell Coach Rob.
