Day time community rowing - Wed am
As from 20 March 2020 Wednesday morning rowing is on hold until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions

As well as the relatively formal learn-to-row courses we have a more informal way of getting in to rowing for adults. On Wednesday mornings we offer those who are not at work (or are otherwise available) a chance to learn to row in small groups. Experienced rowers are also welcome.

We meet at 9.30 and finish 12.00 noon approx. 
For beginners we have use of our Explore Rowing Swift stable training boats (three quads/fours, two doubles and two singles) and three older Edon training singles. For the more experienced we have the choice (within limits) of the club's fine (skinny) boats.

The charge is £5 a session and or £16 for a monthly off-peak membership. Fees/subs are reviewed each September.

If interested in coming along, please get in touch first if at all possible (especially complete beginners) - email Colin Percy at or ring on 07985 003304.

Out with some new starters and some old faces in lovely conditions on 5 Febriary 2020

For anyone coming for the first time, make sure you bring sports clothing (indoor and outdoor, not too baggy), trainers and wellies/sandals/wet shoes - nothing too expensive – it might get a bit dirty or wet. Hoodies or jackets with open pockets are not allowed when rowing or on the rowing machines (thumbs get caught). A full change of clothes is advised.

We have changing rooms and showers. The charge per session is £5 or £16 monthly by standing order. Our location is shown at Postcode is NE15 8NL. We are the club north of the river, just past the Boathouse PH.
