We are keen to welcome rowers who no longer have the time to row or compete at the highest levels. We offer a more flexible routine, very much tailored to your own situation. You may be someone who has just left the Senior Squad, or have taken a break from rowing but wish to get back on the water. Masters rowing at Curlew RC can be purely social, competitive, or a mixture.

Our new Competitive Vets Squad – are mainly ex-squad rowers who can no longer manage the amount of training required in high level competition, but who want to stay fit and race from time to time. The requirement to join the squad is that you have rowed at a reasonably high level either for Curlew or another rowing club.

Crews are organised on an ad hoc basis and our aim is to compete at Vets HoRR, Vets Henley and World Masters. Also, we will compete at local heads and regattas , we will also compete at events not frequented by Curlew RC previously. This is an opportunity to mix fitness, rowing and racing together. 

This is a new venture for Curlew Rowing Club and the Club is supporting this new venture by offering a 12 months reduced membership of £30pcm, this will give you access to our circuit training, gym and boats. 

Our training times are:

(plus gyms sessions either tues/thursday and morning rowing to be organised on a ad hoc bases)
