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.
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.
