Learn to Row

Transitioning from LTR to VBC

We hope you enjoyed your Learn-to-Row experience with the Virginia Boat Club!  LTR is the first step in your rowing journey.  

To get started, join VBC as a club member.  Members enjoy use of both the Rocketts Landing and Robious Landing boathouse facilities, club boats and equipment.  VBC holds social events throughout the year. We also have various committees and volunteer opportunities so you can share your skills to make VBC a better place.

Members can sign up for the Recreational Sweep Rowing Rrogram at either boathouse. LTR graduates have the requisite experience to join these groups. A separate nominal fee is required to provide for coaches.  

As a Recreational Program rower, can enter novice races at our home and away regattas.  Rowers are eligible for entering novice races for 1 year from your first race.  Rocketts Landing also offers a Competitive sweep rowing program. These rowers are committed to rigorous and frequent training in order to represent VBC at various regattas in the area.  The Rocketts Landing Competitive Sweep Rowing Program is attainable for those whose competitive fires burn brightly. 

To join VBC simply go to the "Membership" tab on the VBC site menu and select your membership level.  As a LTR graduate the initiation fee is waived. Your instructor will provide you the discount code for this fee waiver.

There is also an active sculling contingent in the club. VBC owns a number of single, double and quadruple sculling boats and oars. For those new to sculling, VBC offers private lessons to get you started.  Beyond the fee for sculling instruction there are no additional fees for use of VBC boats.  The boathouse manager can provide guidance as to which boats are available.  

If you have any other questions please ask your instructor or any VBC coach or board member.  We look forward to seeing you on the water again soon!
