Albert Park Lake is Melbourne’s spiritual sporting centre and home to Albert Park South Melbourne (APSM) Rowing Club. The APSM Rowing Club was founded in 1994 and prides itself on being committed to its rowers and understanding the need to enjoy yourself as well. Albert Park Lake is the only inner-city rowing venue that has a 6 lane rowing course for regattas. This gives rowers flexibility to train at their own pace and not be interrupted or intimidated by other rowers or crews. Albert Park Lake has a rowing length of approximately 1700m which is ideal for sprints, racing a full length course, or technique rowing.
‘To provide a range of rowing experiences for existing and new members, and to nurture social cohesion and competitive talent within the Club’.
