WBC is a community rowing club supporting adult, high school and middle school rowers. The Masters program started in 2003 and has 40 adult rowers. The High School program started in 2014 and is growing rapidly with nearly 80 High School rowers and 25 Middle School rowers. The club supports rowers from Williamsburg-James City County, York County, Charles City County, and as far as Matthews and Richmond. Rowing builds physical strength and endurance, but more importantly, rowing builds determination, self-discipline, loyalty, and camaraderie. Good rowing programs require high quality leadership and equipment to ensure participants are competitive as well as safe.
