Whether you are a collegiate, masters, or competitive rower, Lake Washington Rowing Club is the right boathouse for you. With a wide range of programs for all skill levels, experienced coaches, modern equipment, a spacious boathouse, a fully equipment gym, and a wonderful community of fellow rowers, Lake Washington Rowing Club is a great place to row for a lifetime.

As a member of Lake Washington you have full access to our rowing equipment, gym, and all amenities. Lake Washington gives you the flexibility to row whenever and however you want. And best of all, we are the most affordable rowing club in Seattle with a mission and long history of spreading the joy of rowing.


We offer a wide range of racing opportunities on Local, National and World stages. We regularly compete in both flat and open water regattas. Many of our members have been on National teams and continue their masters careers at LWRC. We tend to focus on Sculling but we put fast sweep boats together for the Limited entry regattas such as the Opening Day Regatta in Seattle, San Diego Crew Classic, and Head of the Charles in Boston. Join a dedicated group of athletes and let’s go faster!


Located in the heart of Fremont between Lake Union and the Canal, our spacious boathouse provides easy access to the water, plenty of modern rowing shells to choose from, or space to store your own.

We have a full size gym with lots of ergs and free weights as well as a lounge to hang out, relax, and sip a coffee. 


We offer a wide range of rowing programs for all experience levels throughout the year in the morning, evenings, and on the weekend. Whether you want to compete, improve your technique, or enjoy a nice workout on the water, we have the right rowing program for you. All of our programs are run in small groups by experienced coaches who work hard to make you better. 


Lake Washington is a supportive community of athletes who are passionate about rowing. We cheer each other on at regattas, motivate each other to work harder, and keep each other safe on the water.

At Lake Washington we trust and support each other which makes the boathouse feel like a second home. That trust gives our members a lot of trust and flexibility, like taking out boats on their own.


Lake Washington Rowing Club is the oldest rowing club in Seattle with a rich history and a long legacy of teaching the art of rowing.

The club is completely volunteer run which gives it a unique character and makes it the most affordable rowing club in Seattle.
