Welcome to Rochester Boat Club

“Attention… Row!”

Rochester Boat Club (RBC) is a not-for-profit community of masters rowers  (scull and sweep) who row on the beautiful Erie Canal in Fairport, New York.

We offer instructive rowing and sculling for adults of all skill levels, Learn-To-Row / Learn-To-Scull through competitive, with indoor rowing in the off-season, providing a year-round life-long sport that many have come to enjoy.
