Wilmington Rowing Center is for passionate racers and recreational rowers alike. Together we enjoy a spacious boathouse located on Wilmington’s Riverfront with an easy-to-access dock on the Christina River. Our club is a community of dedicated members that are enthusiastic about the sport of rowing.

Unlike many other sports, rowing can be learned at any age and fitness level. Taking an introductory Learn-to-Row class at Wilmington Rowing Center is a great way to get fit, have fun, and enjoy the beauty of the river against the backdrop of the beautiful Wilmington Riverfront.

Become a member of Wilmington Rowing Center and join a group of people in their pursuit of the ultimate team and lifelong sport… rowing. We welcome everyone, both masters and novices. “Learn-to-Row” sessions teach you the basics of rowing and after completion, you can join our recreational and racing groups.
