Welcome to Kingston Rowing Club

Kingston Rowing Club is one of the world's oldest and most successful amateur rowing clubs. Based on the Thames between Kingston Bridge and Teddington Lock, KRC rowers enjoy one of the longest and calmest stretches of rowing water in the UK. The club caters for all levels, demonstrated by both a thriving Novice Squad and social events calendar, through to medalists in recent Olympic Games. KRC is the ideal venue for the typical club rower aspiring for success at National events such as Henley Royal Regatta and the British Rowing Championships.
The club also has a growing Junior Squad, aimed at introducing younger rowers to the sport, helping to foster competitive junior athletes and maybe create the Olympians of years to come. Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner or already an experienced rower, our aim is to provide you with the support, equipment and coaching you need to achieve your goals.

  • Women's Henley Report from the Women's Captain

    We had a good entry this year at Women's Henley, an increase in number of competitors compared to the last couple of years. We competed in Senior Coxed Fours event for the Frank Harry Cup, in the Elite Lightweight Coxless Pairs event for the Parkside Trophy and the School Junior Doubles Event for the Rayner Cup, racing on all three days.

    The Elite Lightweight pair put in a stunning performance at Henley reaching the finals. This being their first season together, the girls have reached the finals at Docklands, Metropolitan and now at Women?s Henley in Elite Lwt Pairs. Under the guidance of coaches Steve Chasey and Richard Ayling our girls won three rounds at Henley to get to the final, beating Henley RC, Agecroft and Thames in style by over three lengths in each event. In the final they were beaten by the Nottingham Union 2- consisting of 2 international Lwt girls. Emily Possnicker (stroke) and Laura Newton a girl who came to us from Bath University, are going on to compete at the National Championships in their lightweight pair this year. We wish them the best of luck.

    The senior girls 4+ have fought on over the summer after the loss of their crew member Natalie Candy, their two girl in mid season. They had to look hard to replace her, lucky Rosie Elmes a Reading rower was able to step into her position, and after a re-rigging of the boat finding herself in the bow seat of the 4+ things had meshed together well. With all credit to them the coxed 4+ managed to get one of the fastest race times of a coxed 4+ boat this year but were knocked out in the first round when they came up against tough competition on luck of the draw. The 4+ Catherine Wheller (stroke), Anna O?Rawe, Lori Murray and Rosie Elmes with coxswain Sarah Whittington have now split into smaller boats in view of carrying on racing small boats for the rest of this season. We wish them the best of luck.

    The junior double, the Kugele sisters Rachael (stroke) and Hayley had their first appearance at Women's Henley in the School Doubles event. They were up against the National School Champions in their first round. This tough competition saw them beat, however, the girls have gained valuable experience and huge confidence from taking part at Henley. Under the guidance of their committed father and their coach Farrell Mossop, this double are set to follow in the lwt pair?s footsteps, joining them to compete at National Championships this year. The Kugele sisters are only 16 years of age, they are set to train together for another year at Kingston Rowing Club. We wish them the best of luck at Nat Champs.

    A big thanks to all coaches, coxes, parents and boyfriends who have helped the girls squad this year. We are already now building a strong core women?s novice squad for next season and are hoping to achieve some good results at all levels.
