When the club’s fleet is not in use by any of our adult or junior programs, members may arrange to row on their own, either in singles or by coordinating their own groups outside of coached club rowing. All independent rowers must be WBC members; guests are only permitted at coached Club rows. Anyone bowing a club boat must be “bow certified” by demonstrating proficiency in rowing as well as knowledge of the upper Schuylkill to an officer or coach.

Individuals who own their own boats may row on their own, provided they follow the rules of the river and HRC. Privately owned shells may be stored at the boathouse through the Hines Rowing Center. CONTACT US for more information about private shell storage.
