Non Members - Interested in learning how to row? We are also keen to hear from you if you have previous rowing experience or you are a competitive sportperson .who can commit to training sessions at least twice a week. After a quiet period with hardly any competitive events due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are actively focusing on recruitment and training for Mens, Ladies, Mixed and Junior Rowing Squads, Club regattas are great fun and held in some of the best locations along the south coast and the south west, from March to October, mainly during the summer months. So, come and join us if you are competitive and enjoy a good work out on and off the water.

Guidance on cancelling rowing
extract from the clubs H&S document;
"Rowing activity at sea should not be commenced if any of the following criteria are forecast to occur in the intended sea area for the rowing activity during a period of two hours immediately after launch:
• mean wind speed of 15 statute miles per hour and a maximum of 19 statute mph;
• sea state exceeds 3 (wave height 0.6 metres mean, 1.0 metres maximum);
• visibility is less than1 kilometre.
Lower constraints should be applied if the crew includes more than two junior or novice rowers or if the crew as a whole is assessed by the coxswain as weaker than average.
If sea and weather conditions in the bay are unsuitable, then rowing may be confined within the harbour provided it is safe to launch and recover the gig(s) and there is no conflict with other harbour traffic."
How the wind and its direction could affect rowing within the harbour Wind Direction map, an aid to seeing how the wind direction could affect rowing.
After considering all the guidance and factors above an assessment of the rowing for the day in question will be made and it may reluctantly be cancelled.
