Learn How to Row

Rowing Lessons available again

In line with the MBC objective of promoting rowing in the Philippines, we will accomodate beginner rowers as guests. There are many boats, from single sculls to fours available for rowing in MBC, in heavy (for beginners) and lightweight (for more experienced rowers) categories.

Please drop a line to the Boat Captain if you want to start learning at boatcaptain [at] manilaboatclub [dot] com anytime. Include your email address and all details will be sent to you.

MBC is located in Manila City, just close to Makati Circuit City. Its address is 2442, Havana Street, Sta. Ana, Manila. MBC's location is available in a map which can be found at on the DOWNLOADS page, On Waze and Google Maps. On the excellent App What3words the location name is https://w3w.co/shocks.ranking.thudded

We prefer rowing in the mornings as it is cooler. Once you have made initial contact with the Boat Captain you will be put in touch directly with our coach, an Philipines Olympian Rower, Benjie Tolentino.He competed in the 2000 Summer Olympics.

There is a fee of P600 per person, per lesson charged by the Club (payable in cash). This covers the guest fee, coach fee and outing fee, so please join us and enjoy...!!

You MUST sign the Rowing Waiver form before going on the water, which also states that you can swim - unlikely that you will of course, but a required Health & Safety rule. The form is available on the DOWNLOADS page of this website or at the Club.
