About WBC

The Williamsburg Boat Club is a community rowing non-profit organization that strives to provide rowing experiences to anyone who wants to row.  We have learning-to-row experiences, camps, competitions, social events, banquets, winter training, and rowing practices for people from middle school to senior citizens.

We are proud of all that we have accomplished over the years.  With our leadership dating back to 2006, the club has grown over the years from solely an adult program to over 200 members represented by middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adults. Hundreds have benefitted from our presence here on the Virginia Peninsula over the years, including college students who have returned to row with us during the summer and/or who have returned to Williamsburg to row with our Adults/Masters. 


Located in James City County on the banks of the Chickahominy River, our club partners with the Chickahominy Riverfront Park to provide an amazing rowing experience on the River.  The past few months have seen the coastline of the River change a bit.  Part of James City County's master plan to shore up erosion along the Chickahominy River has created some very beneficial outcomes for viewing future WBC Regattas. (Pictures will be posted soon).  The entire Western coastline of the park will have amazing views of our races.  We can't wait to SEE our rowers on the water.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us through the past year (2020).  Whether you donated money, volunteered, coached, or supported those who did, we can't express enough how we appreciate everything you've done to keep our "doors" open and our club to not only survive this pandemic, but to thrive as a community non-profit this past year.
