The USC Boathouse at the Port of Los Angeles
The Women of Troy train in the Port of Los Angeles, near San Pedro, just a short, 20-minute drive from USC. The USC Boathouse is located just steps from the water and contains 10 racing eights, five fours, six pairs and several singles.
The Port provides great weather year-round (60s and 70s in the winter months and 70s and 80s in the early fall and spring) and calm water. With very little boat traffic and 12 miles to row on, the Port of Los Angeles provides an almost flawless rowing environment.
In addition, USC shares the Port with Hollywood, as many films have been shot where the Women of Troy practice. The Port’s most prevalent landmark, the Vincent Thomas Bridge, can easily be spotted in “Face/Off,” “The Usual Suspects” and “The Terminator.”
