Women's eight at Rutherford Head, November 2016
Women's eight out on the Tyne in the Rutherford Head, November 2016
The Women's Squad is a fun, friendly group of people who enjoy rowing together. We are made up of all ages and abilities and currently have an active membership of around 20, which we hope will continue to grow. Each year we integrate girls from the novice squad and the older juniors. We are also increasingly able to provide for Masters women

We welcome new members who have had rowing or sculling experience elsewhere. We try to cater both for those who want to simply use rowing to keep fit and for those who want to race at regional or national levels. Complete beginners should go to the 
Learn to Row page for advice.

Training & selection 

We welcome rowers wanting to train at all levels. We are fortunate to have Dave Higgins as our coach, who sets a challenging programme to follow and gives up much of his time to be at water and land training sessions. For those wishing to be considered for boats racing at a national level, training involves four compulsory sessions a week. 

Crews will be selected for the national competitions on a merit basis. Ergo times, technical ability and ability to move boats will form the basis of selection by our coach. Those who do not want to wish to compete at the higher levels are welcome to join in the sessions of their choosing.


Apart from rowing we all enjoy a night out or two together and a highlight of the year is the annual Winter Ball which brings all members of the club together for a night of fun and romance.


Renske Herrema is the squad coordinator. If you are interested in joining the squad please message her via the 'Contact us' page here
