Club Training Sessions

Club sessions are held at the Boat House, on the banks of the River Tweed during our rowing season, which is mainly from March to October, when weather and tide conditions are suitable. During the winter months training sessions are still held but in the format of ergo and circuit training.

Club sessions are:

New to Rowing – Last Wednesday in every month until September. 6:00pm sharp, coaching will be given to progress to Tuesday night coaching sessions. £5 fee and you must be willing to attend a capsize drill.

Juniors and beginners – Tuesday evenings 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm, where coaching will be given.

Advanced and club members – Thursday evenings from 6.00 pm.

There are some Saturday and Sunday outings, this is dependent on tide and weather conditions.

Everyone should bring dry clothes and a towel.

The club has a range of boats available from single sculls to fours and quads. Fours are ideal for getting to grips with the basics of rowing, and quads provide a good introduction to sculling. If you have never rowed before, most people can pick up the basics of rowing after a couple of sessions. Once you have mastered the technique you could then have a try at double and single sculling.


Membership is open to all,  no previous experience is required, and we provide tuition to all our new members. We do ask that you should be in good health and be able to swim at least 50m.  Click on link for a copy of the clubs rules and constitution.
