Minnesota Boat Club   Rowing in St. Paul since 1870


The Minnesota Boat Club is located on the shores of Raspberry Island in downtown St. Paul. The 501(c)3 nonprofit club has been promoting health and fitness through the sport of rowing since 1870 and is the state's oldest athletic organization. The club offers competitive and recreational rowing opportunities for members of all ages. The MBC's boathouse is the jewel of St. Paul's Mississippi riverfront and contains a lovingly restored banquet hall available for rental.
