Welcome to Rochester Boat Club

COVID-19 - June 2020 Update

COVID-19 – July 2020 Update

RBC cares about safety. We have adopted strict CDC based directives for hygiene and put US Rowing guidelines in place for training in small boats. The boathouse is open for tenants to row singles (1x) and doubles (2x) with individuals living in the same residence. We are also offering on-land outdoor erg classes, sculling classes, and private lessons.  Unfortunately, team boats are not allowed at this time.

As our knowledge of COVID-19 evolves and when state/local guidelines allow for team training we hope for an eventual return to full programming.

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.
