Program Director and Varsity Head Coach

Bob Maclean joined Artemis Rowing Club in Nov. 2021 as our new Director of Rowing / Head Coach. He brings to Artemis RC over 19 years of coaching experience, both at the junior and collegiate levels.  His crews have medaled extensively at both the SW junior championships and Youth National Championships (including 2 National titles), as well WIRA and PAC-12 regattas at the collegiate level.  He has also helped place many athletes on top collegiate teams, as well as on US Jr. National Teams, of which several went on further to compete in the U-23 Worlds.  Bob was on the rowing and cycling team at UCD, and earned his degree in Exercise Physiology from UC Davis, and has a Level 2 Coaching Certificate from US Rowing. His most recent experience was as the Head Men’s Rowing Coach at University of Oregon where his MV4 took the Bronze medal at the PAC-12 Championships. Prior to his Oregon position, he served as the Head Men’s Coach at Capital Crew where 2 boats medaled/made finals at YNC’s, served as Head Coach at Pacific Rowing Club in SF for 10 years, and was the Men’s Frosh coach at Sacramento State from 1992-1994, where his crews defeated many PAC-10 teams.  Bob is a good fit as he grew up sailing, and then rowing competitively on the Oakland Estuary (for the Oakland Strokes, where he won his 1st Nationals medal), and believes in Artemis’s mission of small boats, developing good athletes, growing good leaders and making rowing available to anyone in our community who wants to row.  Bob currently resides in Alameda and also holds 3 teaching credentials.  He’s traveled much of California by bicycle, and also completed a solo transcontinental bicycle trip across the U.S. in 1994.  He dreams of doing another one if time allows!
