Summer 2018 courses

We have run two courses in 2018. One was every Wednesday evening for eight weeks which started on 2 May. The other was every Sunday morning for eight weeks; this course started on 29 April at 11.00am. T
he courses were £100 all-in for the eight weeks. It is now too late to apply for a course in summer 2018, but get in touch via the form below for the next opportunity.
Daytime community rowing - Wednesday mornings

If you are free during the day on a Wednesday from 9.30-12.00 our less formal daytime rowing sessions could be for you. It is currently £4.50 a session (or you can take out monthly off-peak membership by standing order for £15).

If you are interested in the Wednesday morning sessons, then please email Colin Percy at We can usually take both beginners and experienced rowers at any time, but please check first as to when you should come down in case we are short of coaches or helpers.

Course info for participants


We are located at Newburn, west of Newcastle. Head for Newburn Bridge, but turn sharp right just
before the bridge, go past the Boat House PH, then another sharp right and up and left into our car

We will probably not be on the water the first week, so please bring clothing and trainers suitable
for reasonably strenuous exercise on the rowing machines, stretching etc. But just in case we do
venture out, though, do bring wellies or sandals or shoes that can get wet.

The general advice for rowing is that clothing should be light, relatively close-fitting but flexible.
Even though this is the spring/summer, warm and waterproof layers are also advisable in your kit
bag. And no hoodies or other upper garments with unzipped side pockets - thumbs get caught
Things may get wet or dirty, so nothing expensive. Always bring a change of clothes and towel!

What happens after the courses

We’ll explain more as we go along, but we hope you will carry on rowing with us after your course
finishes. You will form our new Novice Squad for rowing through the autumn and winter into the New Year. In previous years the squad has trained on the course slots of Sunday mornings and Wednesday
