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.

Senior men win at Reading regatta!

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 14, 2010

Senior Men win at Reading Reagatta 2010There were glum faces on Saturday morning as a last minute change to the crew left the VIII(I) feeling a little less confident than usual. But in true Broxbourne style they pulled it together just in time to storm to victory and beat the Reading VIII by 4 lengths in the final.  A fantastic win for the senior men and special congratulations to Alex and Cally who gained their first win at senior level!

Crew ~ Chris Scorah, Craig Allen, John Hounsell, Alex Goodwin, Rob Alexander, Graham Everett, Simon, Chris Turnbull, Cox: Cally, Coach: Matt Stallard.

Met Regatta

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 7, 2010

The weekend of 5th/6th June saw the Senior Men’s squad travel to Dorney lake for the Met Regatta.  We entered IM1 VIIIs on the Saturday and an IM1 coxless IV on the Sunday.  The VIII was fortunate to have a straight final in the afternoon so we were able to have a morning paddle at the club and before packing up and heading to Dorney.  We came third behind Imperial and Radley.  Importantly, we had closed the gap on Radley by about 4 seconds from Wallingford.  On Sunday, we came third in our heat, narrowly putting out a UL crew, and then came 3rd in the final.  No wins, but another set of very promising results.
