About Gorge Narrows Rowing Club

Gorge Narrows has been providing an amazing source for rowers of all ages to get together and row for over 20 years. We have rowers of all skill ranges with different levels of competitiveness.

 

The Gorge Narrows Rowing Club is located on the historic Gorge Waterway, just south of the Selkirk Trestle Bridge, and is an active partner in the Victoria Harbour Community.
