Masters (27+)


For adults aged 27+

Our active and growing Master membership fosters an environment where both new and experienced rowers can pursue their diverse goals. Masters rowers come with a variety of aspirations. For some, it's about the serenity of the water, while others thrive on the excitement of competition. Whether it's finding peace in leisurely rows or the rush of regatta challenges, being a Masters rower means embracing a world of opportunities.

When do Masters row?

Masters engage in year-round training, with sessions held on:

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 pm (4 pm in winter)
  • Saturday mornings at 7:30 am
  • Sunday afternoons (singles)

Additional times can be arranged as well.

You're not required to attend every session; crews are formed at the start of each row, based on available rowers.

There are many opportunities to join regattas throughout the season, and if you're interested in competing, you'll receive support for training and participation.

Beyond competition, Masters rowing emphasises the holistic benefits of rowing, promoting health, fitness, social connections, and lasting friendships.
