Welcome to the Broxbourne Rowing Club website! We are friendly rowing club with a fine fleet of boats, a fully equipped gym, and a modern, spacious club house with a bar. We row pretty much undisturbed on a delightful stretch of the river Lea. We compete vigorously and successfully in local and national races and welcome all including senior, masters, beginners, juniors and recreational rowers.

If you haven't rowed before, the sport provides full-body outdoor fitness, stimulates your senses and challenges you physically. There are few things as exhilarating as rowing at full pressure in a well synchronised crew. We run regular Learn to Row courses for juniors and adults to set you on your way.

If you are a more experienced rower, you will find a racing crew to meet your aspirations, whether you want to compete at Henley, in the masters world championships, or national and provincial races. Some prefer to enjoy recreational rowing and our touring boats travel far and wide on long weekends away, or compete in pageant-spectaculars like the Great River Race.

We also welcome aspiring and experienced coaches and coxes. These vital members of the club have the opportunity to make a real difference to the crew. Inexperienced or new coxes will receive support, training and coaching and are unlikely to be short of crews to practice with!

If you are interested please get in touch with the club.

Molesey Veteran Head 2011 – Broxbourne Win E Eights and Finish Second Overall

Posted by Andy Crook | March 7, 2011

The Masters Men’s E Eight won their division at the Molesey Veteran Head on Saturday 26th February 2011 in a time of 9 minutes 23 seconds, also being placed second overall for the Head behind the Crabtree C Eight.

The crew, comprising of Quintin McKellar (str), Russell Mould (7), Phil Lumley (6), Rob Alexander (5), Andy Crook (4), Alistair Cutts (3), Tony Stokes (2), Andy Kelly (bow) and Brenda Scott (cox), comfortably beat all 8 entries in the D Eights category, and on a handicap basis finished 4 seconds behind the winning Crabtree Eight.

In showery conditions and on a reasonably fast stream, Quintin took the crew off at a good clip, covering the course at a rate of 34 and taking it up to an alleged 37 for the final push home. “If only we had got the extra 5 seconds” was muttered by a couple of the crew, but generally a very satisfactory result to build on.

Sainsburys and Tesco vouchers..

The club will be collecting Sainsburys Active Kids and Tesco Schools & Clubs vouchers over the coming months. Last years vouchers were used for mats and balls for the gym.

The collection boxes will be in the bar/lounge area from Saturday morning onwards.

Happy collecting!
