From the Club Captain - Spencer Nichols

With 60-70 active rowers competing at junior, club and masters levels the club is always looking for experienced or potential rowers, coxswains and coaches.

Rowing is a demanding and rewarding sport. It caters for all ages and provides opportunities to compete against other athletes from throughout New Zealand. Currently the club has members aged from 13 - 78 years. Anyone considering rowing as a new sport and wants to joint our club, needs to:

  • be able to swim 50 metres
  • have a reasonable level of fitness
  • a willingness to learn and a positive attitude
  • be comfortable in small boats

Every year the club introduces a small group of novice rowers to the sport during the winter training period (April-Sept) in readiness to compete in the upcoming season commencing in October.

Junior Level - Year 9-13

Club Level - Late teens to adult

Masters Level - 27 - 85!!

Coxswains and Coaches

The club is always keen to talk to people interested in being a coach or a cox. Both roles are vital to the success of a rowing club and present great opportunities for leadership and personal development.
