The Squad covers rowers from 27 up to 50 something, racing in Masters A through to Masters D. Typically most of the squad are in their 40’s and have been with the club for some time!
We typically train three to four times per week: in the Summer this is on Tuesday and Thursday evening’s plus Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Abilities and commitments vary in the squad so there is always a space for any new member to join up and fit in. We often compete on the local rowing circuit and some of the squad compete at a national level too.

We sometimes get out to compete but mostly enjoy keeping fit and the social side of being part of a great rowing club. having said that, our more competitive squad members regularly compete and win at national and local events.
We do like a good chat and pint in the bar though!
