The basic aim of RCBC is to provide an excellent infrastructure for aquatic sports. Pune, which is a sports lovers paradise, was thus an ideal location. Over the years, the Club recognised the need to incorporate other activities under its aegis. The Club today offers with a wide variety of sports for its members.

Boating activities have gained an unbelievably humongous momentum in the recent times. This activity has been rejuvenated and a large number of members and their children have started taking active interest in this sport.
