False Creek Rowing Club (FCRC) is a volunteer-run recreational rowing club located in Vanier Park on False Creek, right in beautiful downtown Vancouver. False Creek allows for up to 6 kilometres of rowing (one way!) and is easily accessible for anyone living near or around Vancouver. We offer lessons for beginners in the Spring and Summer, and year-round rowing for our members. Visitors are welcome! If you are an experienced rower and want to drop in for a row, please contact us at president at falsecreekrowingclub.ca and we can set you up with our Saturday morning member rowing session! FCRC is a small club that works hard to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for folks to come row and create community. In fact, our code of conduct reads as follows:
FCRC offers social and active memberships. Funding from both will be used to maintain our lease and increase the amount of equipment available to the active membership to use. Fees do not cover the cost of regatta attendance, uniforms or some safety equipment.
As part of the membership sign up process, you will have to agree to the code of conduct and the waiver/acknowledgement of risk documents when you complete your application. All sales are final: there are no refunds and please note that we have expectations that all participants and members know how to swim.
We are proud to support our national and provincial associations: all active and social members must purchase Sport membership in Rowing BC and Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA). This is currently $25 and is non-refundable. All social and active members must renew their membership in Rowing BC and RCA prior to April 1 each year.
This button is for purchasing the following types of membership through the Rowing Canada Aviron membership registration system:
This button can also be used to pay for boat storage fees and FCRC's rowing lessons.
Please note: if you have purchased a membership from RCA in the last few years, you may already have an account on this system. If you do, please use the associated password. If you do not recall the password, please use the password reset function before continuing. If you think you have an acount on the system, you can try the forgot username function to recover it.
Active Membership via Recurring payment ($43 per month)
Please note that recurring FCRC membership payment (processed by PayPal) should be made after purchasing your Rowing BC and RCA membership.

August 2015 - Rowing Lessons
As part of a program to mitigate noise for the residents of False Creek, particularly early in the morning: the False Creek Rowing Club does not use powered megaphones. We also use four stroke engines (as small as we can safely get away with) and boats that put up the least amount of wake possible. We understand that mornings are special times and we want to keep it that way.
available from RowWest.com in singlet and uni styles. Add black shorts for the official look.
