Experienced rowers know that fall and winter can be great rowing conditions in the PNW! We enroll new members year-round but have fewer on-water offerings for new scullers and strictly sweep rowers during the winter. Private lessons are available to non-members who need a tune-up before diving in (so to speak!) If you would like to join LWRC, please email the LWRC office with a summary of your 1x rowing experience and to check membership availability.
Membership contracts are annual commitments designed to sustain the club regardless of the seasonality of our sport. They can be setup to autopay in monthly installments, or in full.
