Promoting and growing the sport of rowing and the club in all its forms and to encourage success in all its areas

Waterford Boat Club

Waterford Boat Club has been based in our city since 1878. At almost 150 years old, it is the oldest sports club in the city and we are proud to say, one of the original founding members of Rowing Ireland. We have a deep history in the city and would attribute our survival to the generosity of our local members and businesses.
