Viking Rowing is a whaleboat rowing club associated with the Bay Area Whaleboat Rowing Association (BAWRA).
We row a one-ton boat with eight oars and a coxswain for fun and to prepare for races with other Bay Area teams (see sidebar).
Please come and join us at our practices, which are Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. and Wednesday evenings at 5:00 p.m. Our boat, the Valkyrie, is berthed at Union Point Park, on the calm waters of the Oakland Estuary near Coast Guard Island. (Get directions)
