A fun, challenging sport—we offer training, racing and coaching opportunities. We compete at the New Zealand university games and world university games.
Victoria University Rowing Club is nestled just down from Wellington’s Civic Square in the picturesque Wellington Harbour. Victoria University Rowing shares its boat shed and training facilities with Wellington Rowing Club in an iconic Victorian-style heritage building situated on the waterfront.
Facilities include an erg room, changing sheds, a full range of boat sizes, and a secondary boat shed located in Wellington’s (often calmer) north-end.
The pinnacle of the University Rowing season is the University Rowing National Championships. This regatta is held at different locations each year and pits university rowers at all levels against each other in a battle for University rowing supremacy. The most prestigious race of the regatta is that for the highly coveted Hebberly Shield, a tradition that dates back to 1928.
