About Us

North Shore Rowing Club was established in 1879 and is the oldest sporting club on Sydney’s north shore. It has been in its current location, on the calm waters of the Lane Cove River at Longueville, since 1933.

The Club’s main objective is the encouragement of the sport of rowing. Club members have achieved success in State, National and International competition, including several Olympics. Today it is Sydney’s pre-eminent masters rowing club.

North Shore is a community club that prides itself on being friendly and inclusive, catering for all ages and abilities. Membership is evenly divided between male and female, and between competitive and recreational rowers. The shed is also home to the Roseville College and Barker College rowing programs.

The club owns a large, modern fleet of boats, ergometers and coaching boats and provides excellent men’s and women’s amenities. A new pontoon, which doubles our boating capacity, has recently been installed.

North Shore Rowing Club has a strong commitment to teamwork. The club is run by volunteers, who do all the management, coaching of members, and maintenance of facilities.

We are a Covid-safe club and all of our members are fully vaccinated.  Participants of our Power of Teamwork programs must be fully vaccinated.
