Who we are

Row Happy

The Whatcom Rowing Association aims to create a healthy community through the love of rowing. Our organization encourages teamwork, fitness, leadership, commitment, and community engagement. WRA offers positive education, coaching, and training sessions to athletes of all ability levels and a wide range of ages, from teenagers to octogenarians.

Whatcom Rowing Association is the only non-profit community rowing organization north of Everett and our members reside throughout Whatcom County. The junior program is currently made up of 30 kids, from 3 middle schools and 4 high schools in Bellingham, Lynden, and Lummi Island.

Let’s get on the water and work together!

What we do

Race Hard

WRA believes in the benefit of rowing access across all ages.  WRA is proud to have an active masters program in addition to our junior program.  We feel the positive attributes of rowing are tangible across a lifespan and we are passionate about providing access to all.
