Summer 2019 courses

We usually run two adult learn to row courses in late spring into early summer, maybe May-June. The next will be in 2019. There are generally on Wednesday evenings or Sunday mornings. We will have some free taster sessions around Easter time. T
he courses in 2018 were £100 all-in for the eight weeks, as a guide for 2019. Get in touch via the form below and we'll get back to you with any news for 2019.
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.

Advice on location and clothing for new starters


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
The general advice for rowing is that clothing should be light, relatively close-fitting but flexible.
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. For footwear, bring wellies, or sandals or similar in the summer. Always bring a change of clothes and towel.
