SINCE 1957 


The Lake Washington Rowing Club is here to further the sport of rowing in the greater Seattle area.


We have activities and programs for all adults, from learn to row to competitive rowing.

Since 1957, LWRC has been a community for rowers of many backgrounds.  Originally established as a training ground for Olympic Rowers, we have become the home for life-long recreational rowers to highly competitive international athletes.

Today, the majority of LWRC members are masters (age 22 and older) rowers from beginner to elite. The common denominator throughout the membership is a love of the sport. The club takes pride in itself as a friendly, volunteer-based organization.  Our the club seeks to pass on a strong tradition of technical skills and racing acumen. We focus mainly on sculling in small boats.


LWRC co-hosts the Head of the Lake Regatta, with the University of Washington, in early November . The HOTL is one of the largest fall head races on the West Coast. The regatta attracts rowers from the Northwest, California, and Canada.
