The men’s squad is focused on competitive racing, with Henley Royal Regatta and Eights Head of the River being the primary aims of the season. Curlew RC has successfully qualified for HRR in 15 of the last 20 years, including prequalification for the Thames Challenge Cup in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and qualification for the Wyfold Challenge Cup in 2017 and 2019. At HoRR, the Curlew 1st VIII finished 63rd in 2018 and 81st in 2019.
During the winter there are outings on both Saturday and Sunday, with ergs and weights set during the week. During the spring and summer, some of the ergs are replaced with additional on the water outings in the mornings and evenings. All of our boats are based at the London Regatta Centre at the Royal Albert Dock, and the gym is on Crane Street in Greenwich. Although we encourage everyone to do the gym training during the week as a squad, we also very much allow those who find it difficult to get to Greenwich, or those with busier schedules to do the training in their own time.
The men’s senior squad is run by the Men’s Captain, supported by the Club Captain and the senior coach. If you would like to know more information, please send the men’s captain an email via the Contact Us page – we will endeavour to get you in a boat as soon as possible!
