Curlew is a rowing club based in East London and is open to adults of all ages and abilities. We pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere and we have successfully qualified crews at Henley for 15 of the last 20 years.

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 in masters rowing.

We are ACTIVELY SEEKING EXPERIENCED ROWERS to join our squads!
