We also welcome membership from those who just wish to offer their support as social members without having to worry about rowing. Applications are welcome from adults of all ages and juniors from 11 -15 years.
Please have a look at our website, which has lots of information about the sport of gig rowing. There are details about how you can get involved, as a new member or sponsor and links to other interesting sites related to our sport. Hope to see you on the water soon.
