Who We Are

WRPC Barn, boats and kids

Join us in the love of
human-powered craft

The Wenatchee Row & Paddle Club is the only facility of its kind in the upper Columbia River. For those who live in the Wenatchee area, we are at most a 10-minute drive away. And thanks to the Loop Trail, which travels right by our facility, we are within biking distance of the entire metro area.

Just as our name implies, we cater to both rowers and paddlers. Within our club, those who enjoy these amateur sports possess various skill levels. While most of our members row and paddle recreationally for fitness, we do have some who train for and compete in Masters Sweep Rowing.


For more on rowing and paddling, see the pages under the 'ACTIVITIES' pulldown menu, at top.

Paddling

Group of kayakers in a backwater

Kayaks, Surf Skis, Canoes
and Stand-up Paddle Boards

Two informal kayaking groups paddle on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings. The Tuesday Morning group paddles year 'round, with start times varying with the season, and is open to those with intermediate or higher skill level. The Wednesday Evening group is open to all skill levels, including beginners, but due to seasonal daylight limitations, runs only from mid-April through mid-September.

If you are a beginner, or have never paddled before please contact Yvette Matson at ymd13@yahoo.com for more information. Kim George will gladly tell you more about the Tuesday paddle group. Email Kim at kgeorge50@charter.net

Getting out on the Columbia River provides amazing views of not only the Cascade Mountains and foothills but also of the metropolitan area. Wildlife is frequently spotted on the shorelines, including in the habitat-rich Horan Wildlife Area adjacent to the Columbia's confluence with the Wenatchee River.
