The four members of the coxless crewLater this year 4 women - including our own Emma Mitchell - will set off to row the Pacific. It will take them 6 months to row the 8,446 miles and will be a world first in rowing that route unsupported across the Pacific Ocean. They will travel from America to Australia, and in the process aim to raise quarter of a million pounds for their two charities Walking With the Wounded and Breast Cancer Care.

On Saturday 24th January 10am-4pm they are visiting Higginson Park in Marlow and bringing their boat - they'll be giving some rides in it and talking about what they are doing and why. Everyone is invited to come along.

Our Learn to Row programme for adults is running from 1 April until 30 September.  Follow the link here and sign up for the programme

Demolition
Demolition Demolition
The clubhouse demolition starts today (31st October 2013) and will take over a month. The clubhouse is being replaced by Marlow Watersports Hub, which will provide facilities for canoeing, triathlon, swimming, and of course rowing. Designs are available. It is fully disability accessible as a home for our Para-rowing group. We still have around £200,000 left to raise (of the overall £2.5m cost) to fund all aspects of the rebuild - there is a donations scheme and events such as a concert and dinner to help close the gap.

After a week of testing in Nottingham 3 boys from Marlow Rowing Club, Sholto Carnegie, Josh Kent and Harry Glenister, have been selected to race in Great British combinations at Munich International Regatta on the 4th and 5th of May.
