KRC took a large contingent of the Junior Squad to race at Wallingford Long Distance Sculls over 4250m, as well as a Senior Womens double. For the first race of the season the weather was fantastic, with bright sunshine and clear skies as our scullers raced down the course. We recorded our first win for the season with the women's Masters 2x winning their category by a considerable margin.
Kingston Students Rowing Club are an active part of KRC and is an ideal sport for students who want to get fit, race hard, balance a great social life and be part of a lively club. KRC have developed successful oarsmen and women over the years, many of whom progress to KRC Senior Sqauds within their time at Kingston University and race at Championship level at BUCS races. Many students also represent the club at Henley Royal Regatta and Women's Henley Regatta.

Some 150 athletes turned out our Start of Season Meeting on September 5th. A great turnout of both existing squads and many new members attended along with our Executive Committee members.

We had an extremely exciting and successful 2014-15 season, 2015-16 sees much more to come on the horizon!
Kingston Rowing Club's summer sculling courses were a great success. For three weeks we ran courses with two professional coaches, Nick Rowett and Andy Medcalf and some helpers, for a group of 12 or fewer scullers, giving a lot more coaching attention to individuals than other similar courses. Feedback from athletes was extremely positive and some have already booked places for next year. We will be running them again in 2016 in July and August.
