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.

In the News

Unfortunately, sessions for  Learn-to-Row for 2020 are cancelled due to COVID-19.  We will resume our Learn to Row in the Spring 2021.

Open Houses in 2020 will be delayed until we feel like it is safe and responsible to hold them because of the Coronovirus COVID-19 situation.  If you wish to get a tour, please contact us to set up a time.

NEW! We are now offering a Novice Rowing Program, for those who want a little more instruction. This will be offered in 2021 also.
