Victoria University Rowing Club is nestled just down from Wellington’s Civic Square on the scenic Wellington Harbour waterfront. VURC shares its boat shed and training facilities with Wellington Rowing Club in an iconic Victorian-style heritage building.
Facilities include an erg room, changing sheds, a full range of boat sizes, and a secondary boat shed located at 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.
