Nanaimo Rowing Club

Our clubhouse is located on Long Lake in Nanaimo, BC, where we are able to train almost year-round.  Our members range in age from 12-75 years old.  We have a strong group of competitive junior rowers and a small but enthusiastic group of masters (that's anyone over 21 years old!).

Boathouse at Long Lake

Together with the Nanaimo Canoe and Kayak Club we have formed the Long Lake Flatwater Training Centre Society  (LLFWTC) so we can jointly raise funds to build a new boathouse for rowing and paddling sports at Loudon Park, Long Lake, Nanaimo, BC.  With the support of the city we are taking a phased approach with the first priority for boat storage.

Any cash donations you make towards the cause in the amount of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.  To make an online donation click here.  For more information or questions email us at
