On 3 March 1895 two clubs were established in Wilhelmsburg: the "Wilhelmsburger Männer-Ruder-Club von 1895 e.V. (WMRC)" for the "seniors", i.e. young men being older than 25 years and the "Ruder-Club "Pfeil" (RCP)" for the juniors. The RCP joined the WMRC very soon. As rowing for women became more and more popular, the WMRC changed its name to "Wilhelmsburger Ruder-Club von 1895 e.V. (WRC)" on 27 January 1957. The club became member of DRV in 1960. Being badly hit by the great Hamburg flood in 1962 the "Ruder-Club "Stradella"e.V." joined the WRC on 25 January 1963.

On 14 February 1965 the "Ruder-Club "Pirat" von 1897 e.V." and the Veddeler-Ruder-Club "Adler" von 1898" , formerly "Ruder-Club "Victoria"" merged forming the new club "Hamburger Ruder-Vereinigung 'Norderelbe'" von 1897 e.V., in 1972 the city of Hamburg quit the lease of the club#s boat-house. As the city was not able to offer the club a new real estate, the members finally joined the WRC in 1978
