SINCE 1957 

Lake Washington Rowing Club is a volunteer-run organization that has promoted the art of rowing in Seattle since 1957.

We are an inclusive community with rowers of all experience levels and from all walks of life. We cheer each other on to become better rowers and also have fun together off the water.

If you love rowing or want to learn it, there is no better place to row than Lake Washington Rowing Club.


Continue rowing at LWRC and join a community of avid rowers who support you.

Pick one of our coached programs that fits your experience level, schedule, and rowing aspirations. You can also row independently in one of over 60 modern shells. We are the only club to offer this much flexibility.

LWRC has the most affordable membership rates of any club in Seattle. Sign up for a membership or try us out for a limited time.


Be active, learn a new skill, and enjoy the wonderful waterways around Seattle by learning how to row.

Our experienced coaches will teach you everything you need to know and get you on the water safely in no time. And you will find a rowing community in LWRC that is here to support you.

Sign up for one of our Learn To Row programs and join us on the water.

With 500 entries and a magnificent course, Head of the Lake is a unique event that rowers from all over the United States travel to attend on the first weekend of November.
