Potomac Boat Club is a member-run boat club in Washington, DC on the Potomac River. Potomac Boat Club welcomes rowers of all ages and skill levels, sculling and sweep, from novices to juniors to masters, and from the casual to the obsessed! We are a community bound together by our appreciation for this unique institution, our devotion to the sport and our love for the great Potomac River!
Membership is by application only and allows full use of the club building and equipment. We offer a variety of boats for the use of our members, including singles, doubles and quads. There is also a fleet of canoes, paddleboards and kayaks available for your use.
As a volunteer organization, all members are expected to contribute regularly to the management, maintenance, operation and repair of the facilities and equipment. This may include professional skills (law, accounting, management, etc.), trade skills (carpentry, plumbing, electrical, etc.), and rowing skills (coaching, orientation, boat repair, sculling certification, regatta management, etc.). Periodic member workdays are scheduled throughout the year and there are plenty of opportunities for members to help keep our club running smoothly.
