Whitemarsh Boat Club (WBC) is located at the Hines Rowing Center (HRC), in Whitemarsh Township at 801 Washington Street. HRC is a modern facility that is home to several rowing programs including masters, high school and collegiate teams. HRC has locker rooms with showers, storage for private single sculls, and an ergometer room with Concept2 rowing machines.
The club can be reached from the nearby major routes I-76 and I-476. It can also be reached by public transportation on SEPTA’s Manayunk Norristown line or SEPTA’s Route 97 bus. The Spring Mill Station is about 500 meters downstream from HRC and the Conshohocken Station is about 1,500 meters upstream from HRC. HRC is 35 minutes by train from center city Philadelphia and easily accessible by bicycle via the Schuylkill River Trail bike path which runs directly behind HRC’s campus.
The upper Schuylkill River has four miles of very good water on which to row, between the Fayette Street Bridge and the Flat Rock Dam to the south.
