Learn to Row

So many of us can only dream of being on the water and learning to row.  Living in the beautiful state of Washington, that dream can easily come true.  Whatcom Rowing Association’s Learn to Row Program is for all individuals ages 18 and older and is offered during the spring and summer. We have a unique program that will introduce you to rowing in a positive and fun environment. All of our Learn to Row programs meet twice a week for four weeks and cost $100.

This class is required for all new rowers.  Exceptions can be made for more experienced rowers.  Email the program director to discuss the class that would work best for you.

Membership to the WRA is not required for the Learn to Row class.  Learn to Row is for ages 18+, if you are younger and want to learn how to row, please use the Juniors section to get started.
