Welcome to Rochester Boat Club

COVID-19 – Spring 2021 Update

Given the latest CDC and USRowing guidelines, we have returned to rowing in team boats!  At this time, rowers must be fully vaccinated to participate in sweep classes.  Sculling in singles is available for unvaccinated rowers; vaccinated rowers can scull in singles, doubles, or quads.  The current session is for experienced rowers only, but we are hoping to add novice and learn-to-row classes in late June.  Please check the registration page for updates as the summer progresses: https://registration.rochesterboatclub.org

Stay healthy and be smart.

“Attention… Row!”

Rochester Boat Club (RBC) is a not-for-profit community of scullers and sweep rowers that 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.
