HISTORY

Originally founded as the Olympic Rowing Club in 1876, the Virginia Boat Club descends from one of the earliest rowing clubs in the United States.  As Reconstruction was coming to an end, the city of Richmond became the premier city of the South and rowing flourished.  In 1888, the Olympic Rowing Club merged with the Kanawha Rowing Club creating the Virginia Boat Club.  Virginia Boat Club boasts two gorgeous boathouse venues.  In 2018 VBC Sprints Regatta will be held at Robious Landing Park.
