$5 fee explained... We've never added a fee to the rowing season dues; however, we would like to mitigate some of the fees that PayPal charges us to process orders with a credit card. Over the course of a year, we pay about $2500 in fees. Thank you for understanding. The $5 fee is about half of the fee that is charged to the club by PayPal. WBC will be paying the other half.

Masters Spring 2020 Learn to Row:
Postponed until further notice.
Williamsburg Boat Club has suspended rowing practices for the next two weeks, and this is likely to be extended into April. We will reconsider this decision as more information and guidelines come out. This also affects our planned Learn to Row class that was to begin the end of March. We have chosen to delay the start of this class. As of yet, we have not set a date, but we will let you know as soon as possible.
We are so looking forward to seeing you at the LTR class. Please refer to our WBC website for updates on the club and the class. We will also be sending you an email, updating you on the new start date. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

About WBC Masters
WBC has a growing Masters program that operates year round with rowing sessions daily. Masters are adult rowers with various levels of experience. We welcome alumni from the Junior Program and their parents, college students, former collegiate rowers, and any adults that enjoy being active on the water. However, no experience is necessary to join us. We offer Learn to Row classes (See Below - Classes are $205 for all ten sessions) that will prepare you to participate in the club. The class is a prerequisite for joining the club to ensure all safety precautions are met. If you already know how to row, you will just need to discuss your experience with the coach who will determine whether or not you would need to attend the Learn to Row classes.
As a member you can pursue further development of your rowing skills as well as move on to a performance group to increase the workout intensity and the opportunity to race in Regattas.
Rowing has been proven beneficial for all ages because of the cardiovascular workout with low-impact for your joints. It provides a workout for your whole body, improving muscle tone, and increasing lean body mass.
Masters row at Chickahominy Riverfront Park and offer various levels of membership, depending on whether you want competitive rowing, sculling, or simply relaxed fitness. Race opportunities are available, however you are not required to race to be a member of the club.
