Despite our name, we are and always have been on the Wirral, where we were founded in 1884. Our boathouse has been rebuilt two or three times and we now occupy what is probably the best equipped boathouse in the north-west, with a fleet of more than thirty-five racing boats, eights, fours, quads, pairs, doubles and singles as well as beginners boats and coaching and safety launches.
We welcome all rowers, whether competitive or recreational. If you are over 11 years but under 18, come and join our Junior sessions. No need to join the Club until you decide you want to race – just pay a small fee each time you come. If you are an adult thinking of having a go, sign up for one of our adult beginner sessions, held every three months. Again, there is a modest fee for the course but no commitment to join the Club until you have tried it!
We send crews to regattas and head races all over the country and run two events of our own every year, Merseyside Regatta in May and the Head of the Float in December..
You may deduce from those dates that rowing is a year-round sport and, indeed, there is activity at the Club virtually every day. If the weather is too horrible for it to be practicable to take out a boat, we have Concept rowing machines and weights in our training room.
