The White Marsh Boat Club, instituted in 2005, is a not for profit organization, dedicated to advancing the sport of rowing.  White Marsh Boating Club is located about 10 miles north of Boat House Row, tucked away around the Conshohocken curve welcoming all, even new and novice rowers as well!

Rick Shwarz of White Marsh Boating Club states, “If you’re interested in getting involved in the sport of rowing, be careful because it can be addicting!”
