Curlew is a rowing club based in East London and is open to adults of all ages and abilities. Although very successful, with crews at Henley for 15 of the last 20 years, we pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Founded in 1866, Curlew Rowing Club has been in Greenwich, without interruption for over 150 years, through 2 world wars, based in various boathouses. Over the past few years we have seen a growth in our Development Squad as well as our Master’s Squads, allowing us to provide rowing for all abilities from when you first learn to row, through to senior and then master.

We currently recruiting for the 2019/2020 season, if you are a recent graduate moving to London or someone looking at moving clubs or getting back into the sport, please drop us a line and we will get you out in a boat.
