About the club

Curlew is a rowing club based in East London. Although very successful, with crews at Henley for 12 of the last 15 years, we pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere. Founded in 1866, Curlew has been in Greenwich without interruption for over 150 years.

Our clubhouse and gym are based in Greenwich, however we now row out of the London Regatta Centre, which is 2k racing docks. Our racing calendar support both local and national regattas, we regularly travel aboard for training camps. We are a competitive club a stone throw away from Canary Wharf, with a mature approach to the whole work/life/rowing balance.
