Why Row at Lake Washington?


An amazing boathouse in the heart of Fremont, modern equipment, a full gym, a lounge and a lot of flexibility and freedom make Lake Washington unique.


We offer a number of masters rowing programs throughout the year that cater to different experience levels and schedules. Our experienced coaches teach in small groups.


Lake Washington is a supportive community of athletes who are passionate about rowing. We drive each other to be better rowers and have fun together on and off the water.


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 entirely run by volunteers.
