One of the joys of recreational rowing is to explore rivers elsewhere, often meeting up with other clubs with like-minded members. For example, the group organizes an annual row to Newark (a 37km journey with refreshment breaks along the way) and we take part in national multi-day touring events to different regions of the UK such as the R Thames, R Severn, major canal networks and to Loch Lomond. In recent years we have also gone abroad to reciprocate with clubs in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Venice (Vongalonga Regatta). Naturally, touring and visits to other places are optional extensions of what the group does.
The Recreational Group has four regular weekly sessions but please note that group members attend as many or as few sessions as they wish and can use the club at any time. Recreational rowers pay a reduced subscription whilst still enjoying full access to all the facilities including the gym and expert coaches.
