Join Chesterton Rowing Club

Beginners will be trained sufficiently in training boats to be able to row safely when put into an eight, and are often able to race within a few outings.

We train our own rowers from scratch using a Mondego tub pair and a Kayell training scull.

Outings are generally coached, even for beginners. This leads to rapid development and helps rowers avoid faults which can be difficult to overcome when habits have become ingrained.

Chesterton RC is affiliated to British Rowing and to the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association

The club is active socially as well as for rowing, and although we don't have our own boathouse or club house, Chesterton rowers can usually be found enjoying a drink together after outings.

We currently do not offer training for Junior Rowers (under the age of 18), look into some of the other town clubs here, if you are looking for a Junior training program.
