Ouse Marathon

It was a hot sunny day for the Ouse Marathon, in Cambridge. The course was 25km of weed free river winding through the countryside from start to finish. Along the way there were lots of supporters cheering you on and shouts of encouragement from the barges meandering along the river. 

Tyne United were represented by Martin in the masters men’s C single scull category and Sophie in the masters women’s B single scull event. Solid rows by both competing the course in 2 hours and 2 hours 7 minutes respectively.

Explore Series Round 6

Today was round 6 of the explore series host by Durham Amateur Rowing club. And what a fantastic day it was!! The weather was glorious and after our traditional bacon sandwiches, the racing began.

We had 3 races to complete and we won 2 of them. This means we are still top of the league table, closely followed by Tyne Arc, only 2 points behind.

The extra training that we have all put in has really paid off, and the team work on the day was fantastic!! 

The day was topped off with a nice leisurely row along durham river taking in the sights and scenery courtesy of DARC and their cox.

A perfect day had by all ?

Women's Squad


The club welcomes everyone to row, regardless of age (or size). All the local regattas have master’s events and different age groups can row against each other with a handicap system. We welcome all new members, whether you are coming back to rowing after a break or moving up from the Development Squad. For those who have never rowed you begin by joining one of our Learn to Row courses and will then progress into the development squad, before joining the main group.
The Women's Squad train Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6.00pm and Saturday mornings 8.00am and 10.30am. You can attend as many or as few of these sessions as you wish, but if you plan to compete we recommend you attend training as often as possible.


For those wishing to compete we offer great racing experiences for various abilities. These range from the fun loving, highly competitive, Explore Series, which is a fun and friendly introduction to racing; through the local regatta and head races all the way up to the National Championships. We target the biggest regattas and heads in the country. We race both sweep and sculling, competing on average once a month.

Recreational Rowing

We recognise that not everyone wishes to compete and some just row for pleasure and to keep fit. On a Saturday 10.30am-12.30pm we offer a more recreational session. This allows those that do not wish to compete or are newer to rowing to develop their skill level and mix in boats with more experienced rowers, who will help them develop their skill level.


Rowing is a great way to keep fit and a chance to meet new people in a fun and friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in joining our squad then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can arrange for you to come down for a taster session and meet everyone.

We are Tyne United Women
