Joining Our Rowing Club

If you are already a rower and would like to join us, or if you wish to join as a social, non-rowing member, please contact our Membership Secretaries, Imogen Hovil  or Anna Doxey.

For Adults Interested in Rowing:

To join our gig club as a new rower, we offer a “Learn to Row” session where you’ll learn the basics, proper techniques, and how to row as a crew. Here’s how the process works:

  1. Contact: Once you express interest, a member of our team will reach out to explain the next steps.
  2. Induction Courses: We typically schedule two induction courses each year, in May and September. Additional courses may be offered based on demand.
  3. Learn to Row Session: This session lasts approximately four hours. It includes: Land-Based Instruction:** Understanding the basics of rowing and the gig itself. On-Water Experience:** Getting you on the water to fully experience the thrill of sea rowing.


The “Learn to Row” course is free of charge. If you decide to join the club afterward, your membership fee will be pro rata until the start of the new membership year on 1 April 2025.

We look forward to welcoming you to our rowing Club.
