Cox Susie and Coach Birgith welcome you to Kingston Rowing club , to the most beautiful stretch of water in the South.
If you have finished your senior racing, got your career underway or maybe retired, if you are juggling work, life and family, but still have the urge to get on the river, this may well be the right place for you. We have a large group of some 40 + masters aged 36 to 80 something, all having returned to race at the sport they love.
We aim to win at local heads and regattas, at Masters Championships, Masters Henley and this year our men have finally returned to race at FISA masters, currently coming middle of the pack.
Occasionally we form crews with other clubs should age banding require with some notable success. We have access to good equipment with organised squad outings, ergo session, weights session and circuit training available over the winter period.
This year we aim to run another training camp (28 athletes came in 2022) in April (post Easter) in Portugal to get some sun on the back and some miles in the legs.
For 2023 we are also looking at Euro-masters in Munich in July, Open Nordic Masters in Copenhagen in August and for the adventurous – FISA Masters under African skies in Tshwane, near Pretoria in September.
So if you have decent rowing skills, an urge to get fitter and be part of the happiest squad at the club, then contact the captain or the masters coach, via the KRC website.
NOVICE AND DEVELOPMENT MASTERS
Our masters squad is not just for those who have been racing for years. If you have recently joined the world of rowing or have returned to rowing after a break and are looking for somewhere to build your skills, our novice or development masters squads may be the place for you. We are a friendly, welcoming and sociable group of masters that enjoy a programme of coached water sessions and land training sessions. We enjoy competing and have achieved successes at local and larger master's regattas including winning at Master's Fours Head.
We also enjoy and organise a wide range of social activities, off of the water, and are very active within the day to day life of the club. For 2024 we are planning a training camp in Seville where we aim to work hard on technique by day and sample the delights of the area by night.
Get in touch via the website, our club Captain, or social channels to learn more about our squads and find the right fit for you.
