The rapid growth of the sport of rowing has created a need for access to the upper Schuylkill River, in addition to the historic clubs on Boathouse Row in Philadelphia.
The Schuylkill River, in front of the HRC, is wide, deep, and very beautiful, with two long and straight sections.One straightaway, near the HRC, is 1,500 meters long; the other, around the corner, is almost three miles long. Four boats can race side by side along either stretch. The upper Schuylkill River is generally calm, being protected from winds by the tall hills of Gladwyne and Lower Merion, even when the lower Schuylkill is covered with whitecaps.
