The Portland Boat Club is a group of dedicated rowers, mostly scullers, in Portland, Oregon. Up until 1994, we were the Portland Rowing Club, a revival of one of the oldest rowing clubs west of the Mississippi, but following a legal split from a houseboat moorage of that name, we are the Portland Boat Club. We offer our members the benefits of belonging to a competitive club. We offer camaraderie with a focus on improving sculling performance, use of club boats, as well as moorage for privately owned boats. The Portland Boat Club is a member club of USRowing.
We are located on the Multnomah Channel, just south of the Sauvie Island Bridge. Check us out on Instagram at @PortlandBoatClub.
To get to our boathouses from Portland, take US Highway 30 west past the St. Johns Bridge. You will then pass through Linnton (about 8 miles). Take the first right after you pass through Linnton onto NW Marina Way. Cross over a set of railroad tracks and bear left down Marina Way. Go about 1 mile (past Fred’s Marina) until you see a set of mailboxes labeled 12940. Turn right onto the gravel driveway just before these mailboxes. Park in the parking area, walk down the ramp and bear right. PBC is housed in the last two houseboats at the end of the dock.
