A stable quad setting off with genuine 'first time ever' trainees on 21 April 2024
Courses starting 26 & 29 May 24 are full - sorry!

Two courses are running, one 
on Sunday mornings and the other on Wednesday evenings:

Sun 26 May 24 from 10
.00am to 12.00pm for eight weeks 
Wed 29 May 24 from 
6.00pm to 8.00pm for eight weeks

Finish times are approximate - it may be later if we are enjoying ourselves in lovely calm and sunny weather. T
he cost will be £100 all-in for the eight sessions. Those who want to carry on rowing after the courses are normally regrouped at the end of the summer into the new Novice Squad and start paying monthly subs.

Booking for the L2R courses is now closed, but there is the chance of a third course later in the summer, so do get in touch if interested. Money in full will be required by a week before your course starts, at the latest
The format of the course and more info on booking and paying is set out in the L2R 2024 Briefing Sheet downloadable below.

Advice for new starters - clothing & location

Clothing. Make sure you bring sports clothing (indoor and outdoor, not too baggy - thin layers are best), trainers and also wellies/sandals/wet shoes. Don't bring anything too precious - things can get a bit dirty or wet quite easily. Hoodies or jackets with open pockets are not allowed when rowing or on the rowing machines, as thumbs can get caught (painfully). A full change of clothing including a towel is advised.

Location. Our location is shown on our web page at Postcode is NE15 8NL. What3Words code for our front gate is refers.span.door.  We are the club north of the river, just past Branzinos Restaurant/Boathouse PH. There is free car parking at the club (in the car park - sharp right after the pub - or round the front by the river).

An alternative - daytime community rowing - Wednesday mornings

If you are free during the day on a Wednesday from 9.30-12.00 our less formal daytime rowing sessions could be for you. It is currently £5.00 a session or you can take out monthly off-peak membership by standing order for £16. It is for all levels of experience from beginner upwards.

If you are interested in the Wednesday morning sessons, then please email Colin Percy at in advance, so we can plan adequate coaching etc.
