We are one of the UK’s growing number of coastal rowing clubs and our superb location in Alnmouth Bay means our members can enjoy sea and river rowing along with varied social events.

Whether you want to row for leisure or competitively the Club organises regular sessions to suit all our members. Breakfast rows, “sweat sessions” and leisurely ambles up the Aln beckon. If you are competitive join one of our racing crews at regattas and international competitions. We’re a friendly bunch and enjoy relaxed BBQs usually at our base in the old Lifeboat House.

Social rowing

Not everyone wants to compete and the simple enjoyment of rowing with others offers a relatively gentle work out in a beautiful environment. Club members can arrange their own rows with fellow members or join organised club events which run throughout most weeks of the year, weather allowing.

Competitive rowing

Looking for a more challenging work out with the aim to compete in Club regattas? We offer that too. Our training rows help improve technique and build performance with the aim of preparing crews for racing in informal and more serious competitions.

The Club has competed for many years in the World Skiffie Championships and we continue to improve our ranking. In 2022, we entered 13 crews and were ranked 16th out of 56 in the World.

Social activities

Alongside the rowing, we enjoy some great social gatherings too. Some of them have a key focus including boat maintenance, wood-craft and useful skills development. With over sixty members offering a wealth of local knowledge, we also enjoy regular talks on the nature and history of this part of Northumberland. Boathouse BBQs, breakfast rows and picnics on an away trip are key features of our regular social events.
