Y Rowing Centre
The Y Rowing Club was founded in 1910 to provide rowing opportunities for women and while the Centre now conducts programs for both genders, membership is still open only to women.
The 'Y' has been at the forefront in popularising rowing for women. Its members were the first to represent Australia at World Championships and a Lightweight Four recorded Australian women's first success at international level in 1979.
Located on Melbourne's beautiful Albert Park Lake, Y Rowing provides an opportunity for people of all ages (from teens through to mature age adults) to learn and enjoy rowing in a safe and friendly atmosphere and at an affordable price.
Contrary to popular opinion you don't need to be exceptionally strong, or fit, to learn to row. That's why so many people are taking up the sport and thoroughly enjoying themselves while getting fit along the way.
