Welcome to Tyne ARC
Tyne Amateur Rowing Club sits on the River Tyne at Newburn, about 7 miles west of Newcastle city centre. We have the longest and arguably best stretch of river for rowing in the north of England. And we have a new clubhouse with excellent indoor facilities. See our Welcome page for more details.
Singles rowing back on from Mon 18 May

The empty river last Saturday with absolutely no rowing on it despite lovely conditions
In accordance with government restrictions and British Rowing advice on Covid-19 rowing and all other club activities were stopped on 20 March 2020. But a chink has opened in the Covid-19 restrictive wall and singles have been allowed out here from last Saturday, 16 May. This came after a dramatic change of heart by British Rowing overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday last week (12/13 May)

After a try-out at the weekend, the strictly regulated system from Monday 18 May is that no more than two rowers should be on land together getting boated etc at any one time (and suitably social distanced). With the staggered starting times (which must be prebooked) this means that there will be a max of four boats on the water at once.

Each pair of rowers has a strictly defined 90 minute slot to arrive, get out, row, get back in and depart. The next pair of rowers will arrive in the middle of ths 90 minutes and so on. Please note that to begin with it is adult members only and they must be experienced (and approved as such) as no safety launch cover is allowed as yet. M
ore details are on the Covid-19 page here.
