Now, if you are a newcomer, read the brief introduction below. Delve deeper into rowing and into our organization.

We offer the tranquility and solitude of rowing a single scull early in the morning. We also make it possible for you to enter the world of sweep-oared rowing which offers camaraderie and intense competition. And when it comes to competition, the Narragansett Boat Club has some of the most competitive scullers and crews in the nation.

In addition, the Narragansett Boat Club has a tradition of offering rowing and sculling classes to the public. We believe that beginners require good instruction, sound equipment and plenty of opportunities to learn how to row. Developing the correct technique extends beyond a weekend or a short vacation. For men, women, boys, and girls who are eager to develop their rowing skills, our learn-to-row program spans the entire year.

Dig deeper into this website to find out more about NBC Membership, the rowing and sculling classes, regattas, and more. Then contact us through email or by stopping by at the boathouse on River Road in Providence.

Also, go to the Rowing and Sculling Classes Section to find the online applications for adult and youth programs, as well as our free rowing lesson offered during our Open Houses.
