About the Varsity Boat Club: Varsity Boat Club

Throwback to the 1949 IRA, a global event reflected by this newsreel coming from Argentina (and in Spanish). Some excellent footage of the off-water life at Poughkeepsie, including the dining hall (and Warren Westlund '50 eating dinner...) and sleeping porches. Washington would win the JV and Frosh events in '49, but lost the varsity race to Cal, setting up the sweep of the river by Washington the following year in 1950. Thank you Bob Koch for sending in the link!

Thank You Alumni and Friends for Your Support in 2014!

 Fantastic 2014, Both On the Water and In the Classroom

 See You in 2015!

At Washington, our team includes exceptional and dedicated athletes and coaches, a vibrant alumni group, active parents, and friends from across the globe. Our core values include an equal and inclusive environment for all of our athletes - men and women together - and emphasize tradition, community, education, and teamwork. These values do not end at the shellhouse doors, but are a commitment every VBC member has made - since the days of Hiram Conibear - to strive for excellence both on and off the water.  Welcome to our website!
