The Open Water Rowing Center (OWRC) was founded by Shirwin Smith in 1985 with four heavy, early design open water shells. They were launched from what would become Schoonmaker beach and kept in sheds at night. The Schoonmaker Marina and beach were built and Shirwin rented space in the present building. She gradually grew the Center to more than 100 shells. In 2000 it was purchased by approximately forty partners, all rowers, and operates as a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC). The partners are dedicated to preserving a vibrant rowing community and facility in Sausalito. The LLC is managed by a Board of Directors with a President who is elected by the partners each year.
