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. We hope we can get back to actually using them on 2 December!

Rutherford Head (and all on-site club activities) cancelled

Following the announcement of the second lockdown by government on 31 Oct and British Rowing updating its guidance on 3 November the club had no option other than to cancel Rutherford Head, which was due to run on 28 November. 
A longer statement on Rutherford can be found on the event's website page here.The club has also had to shut the club as a whole from 5 November until at least 2 December.

Club AGM held on 17 November 2020    

Despite the second lockdown but with the help of Zoom the club held its AGM on 17 November. There were no obvious technical problems other than the Treasurer's connectivity being a bit dodgy early on. But she made it for her item. Reports not surprisingly focussed to a large degree on Covid-19 and its impacts, though we did manage some proper rowing early in 2020 before the shutters literally came down.

Our Chair of Trustees and Chairman of the Management Committee both remain unchanged. But it was almost all change at the top of the rowing side of things, with Laura Gilbert as Captain standing down after three years and handing over to Tom Campbell. He is now supported by three Vice Captains, two new to the job. A fill list of names and responsibilites can be found at the Governance page.
