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.

Event deadlines coming-up

Posted by Angela Watling | September 14, 2010

We have various events with entry deadlines this Friday. These are:

  • Wallingford LDS and Cambridge SBH – both on 02/10/2010
  • St Neots SBH and Maidstone SBH – both on 02/10/2010

Since the club only has one truck and trailer, if there is interest in both events on one / both day(s), the Rowing Committee will need to decide which to attend.
If you are interested in attending any of the above events, please let me know your interest ASAP and get your entries to me by Friday. There are also events with deadlines the following week, which can be found on the Future Races page.

Winter racing

Posted by Angela Watling | August 30, 2010

With the summer racing season drawing to a close, I have started drawing-up a list of events for the start of the winter season. You can find it by looking at the Future Races page under Racing. It is based on events we attended last year or anything that has been mentioned at the Rowing Committee to date. Take a look and if you are interested in doing any of them, discuss with your Vice Captain. Similarly, mention anything not on the list to either your VC or me (entries at broxbournerowingclub.org) and we can discuss it at the next Rowing Committee meeting!
