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.

Broxbourne RC 30min r20 Ergo Ladder

Posted by Craig Allan | November 24, 2010

At the end of this month I will publish an ergo ladder ranking club athletes based on their best score for a 30 minute ergo with the stroke rate capped at 20. The ladder will be split into two sections one for men and one for women. There will be no further sub-division but there will be a column to indicate which squad each athlete belongs to, and a column for athletes to add their weight, if they wish to do so.

A new ladder will be published every month in the boathouse and the members area of the website. The first ladder will be for November and only include scores achieved this month. All senior squad members are expected to submit a score each month. Intermediate squad members are encouraged to submit scores and the more people from other squads that join in, the better.

One week left in November, happy erging!

Clubhouse Heating

Posted by Amanda Jones | October 19, 2010

To all Broxbourne RC Members.  The clubhouse heating has been turned on.  We will be adjusting it over the next few weeks to get the best out of it so please don’t change any of the thermostat settings.  There will be no immediate effect if you do anyway as underfloor heating takes hours to change.  Also as we are keeping the gym cooler than the rest of the building please can you try to keep the internal doors (and of course external doors) closed.
