Thinking about joining?
We welcome rowers of all abilities, whether you’ve been in a gig all your life, or you’ve no idea which end is which!
For all enquiries, please get in touch with us via the email below.
For many years we have run an official Learn2Row programme that has taught many people the art of rowing our gigs but this is currently on hold due to qualified personnel not being available. We hope to re instate it at some point in the future.
Meanwhile we are still trying to offer taster sessions for interested parties. All newcomers are offered two free taster sessions on the water before having to commit to membership of the club. These sessions will be offered on an individual basis and may depend on your level of experience in and around rowing boats. If you get in touch we can discuss these things in more detail and hopefully accommodate your requirements.
Facilities: We have a fantastic gig storage shed, paid for by an ‘Inspired Facilities’ grant from Sport England where we store our gigs. This also has a mezzanine floor for storage and an ergo rowing machine which can be used by club members.
Gigs: We have 4 traditional wooden pilot gigs as well as 2 plastic GRP gigs.
The pride of the fleet is “Zawn” built by Dave Currah. She is our primary racing gig and will be seen at the various regattas around the region. The other wooden gigs sporting our club colours of burgundy and white are “Pinnacle”, “Penarrow” and “Serafina”. The two plastic replicas are “Flushing” and “Cygnet”.

We are very proud of our achievements and growth over the last 16 years or more and can offer access to a superb facility in a superb location most of the time! The only drawback encountered at certain times of the year is a lack of parking at Kiln Quay near the boathouse. Unfortunately our little secret is out and Flushing’s small beach has been discovered by many visitors causing terrible problems on beautiful sunny days in the peak season. Car sharing, walking from outside the village as well as arriving by our own boats are all ways we try to navigate around this problem when necessary but much more public awareness is needed to let people know that Flushing is a cul de sac, one narrow road in and the same one out with very limited parking, very narrow roads and with no public facilities on or near the beach! So please come and enjoy the location but please come prepared and respect the village and its residents.
