2014 Historic Doubles Refurbishment Update

Refurbishment of our oldest doubles built in 1896 is gaining pace, despite the ‘old girls’ putting up a fight as further plank & rib replacements are deemed necessary. However the joy that they’ve given over the years deserves the care & attention

What we do

Skiffing – Is sculling in a Skiff on fixed seats with 2 oars per person, instead of 1 used in rowing. This provides good all round low impact exercise & can be enjoyed after only a few sessions.

Punting – Requires standing up in a Punt, which is moved by pushing on the bottom of special areas of the river bed with a Pole.

 Socials – To complement the activities on the water, why not relax in the Clubhouse facilities which has a bar & a kitchen for refreshments & meals.

 Regatta Racing – For the more energetic or competitive, we train & race against other Clubs throughout the season from April to October, with circuit training to build fitness all year round.
