In the winter we row on a Saturday and Sunday morning and in the summer we also row on a Tuesday and Thursday evening, though the club is open to members at any time.

In addition to training we take part in competitions as a club which include:

  • Regattas – side by side sprint racing on rivers or lakes, these are held in summer and are over shorter distances of around 500 meters to 1 kilometre.
  • Head races – time trial style competitions where we race other clubs on their own river, these are held on winter and are typically over longer distances of between 2 and 5 kilometres.
  • International competition – we occasionally attend international competitions such as the world masters where we get to race clubs from other countries on an Olympic style rowing lake.


If you have rowed before and are thinking of taking the sport up again (as a number of our club members are very happy they did) we can usually find you a place in a squad. Just contact us and we can discuss what you are looking for and how we can help, be it recreational rowing, fitness or taking part in competitions.
