Unfortunately postponed to a future date.



Coronavirus and rowing at RCRC - 28th March


ALL Club onsite activities officially suspended


Unfortunately it has now gotten to the point where we now have to suspend all on-site club activities. From what I can gather this is the first time since the club’s opening that the club has had to close it’s doors; which somewhat highlights the severity of the current situation.


Message from the Club Chairman

Thank you all for strictly observing the club rules during the current crisis. The absence of rowers on the Dee whilst sad does send out a good message to the wider public. However during this enforced layoff the club has not gone to sleep, 90 people are following Jamie Leighton's training campaign on facebook which includes posts of ergos and daily home workout videos- The participants range across the whole of the club and I would encourage you to get involved; it will keep you fit and you will be ready for some action when we get back on the Water .


We are also using the time to do some real work on our alternative development plan based on the existing site and hope by the time of the agm in July to have some exciting options to present to you.


We will also shortly be publishing a newsletter which we hope you will find stimulating.


Stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all shortly


Jack McGarva

Committee Chairman
