While the Covid-19 restrictions on social interaction rowing and other club activities are running at a much reduced level. We regret that for now we are unable to train beginners with no experience or offer trial rowing sessions. Experienced rowers are welcome join on the understanding there will be limited opportunities to row for a few months yet.
Membership is open to anyone aged 18 and over who is interested in active participation in all aspects of a coastal rowing club. You will be expected to take an interest in how the skiffs are constructed, learn basic boat handling and manoeuvring skills and generally contribute to the running of the club. Read more about skiff maintenance and repair.
Rowing sessions are offered as and when our skippers are available and willing to take charge of a session. This means we don’t have a schedule of regular outings. Sessions are advertised and bookable on our booking page. Read more about how to become a skipper. …
Not everyone will be willing or able to be a skipper but members are expected to take control of the tiller to allow the skipper to row for part of the session should s/he wish.
What does it cost?
Membership costs £20 per year (April-March) plus as much time and effort as you are willing to contribute. The more you contribute the more you’ll get back.
As the ethos of coastal rowing is to offer membership affordable to all, a concessionary rate of £10 is offered to anyone for whom the full rate would be a stretch eg unwaged or students. Being of pensionable age is not sufficient reason to qualify for the concessionary rate.
