River Safety Information

KRC provides all members with information relating to safety at the KRC boathouse and our stretch of river, and requires all members to have read and to adhere to the Safety Plan as part of their acceptance of membership. You can download the KRC Safety and Boating Plan here.

KRC adheres to the Row Safe guide  (replacing the ARA water safety code) and expects all members to adhere to these basic safety standards.  The British Rowing Safety section of their website contains a wealth of additional documents.

The state of the stream at Kingston can be indicated by visiting the Environment Agency web site (Molesey Lock to Teddington Lock reach).  The latest information is available by contacting the Lock Keeper directly on 0208 940 8723  Teddington Lock website.

    If you finished your rowing career a few years back, concentrated on climbing the corporate ladder or raising the family, but now feel the pull of the river, the KRC veteran squad may be just what you need.

    This section of the club currently boasts competitors from 27 years to well above 60.

    It is a very successful branch of the club, having returned from last years world meeting in Zagreb, Croatia with 21 medals with wins in all boat types from1x to 8+.






    We had representatives in the first eights for both the men’s and the women’s  Head of the River, as well as 2 eights entered for the sadly cancelled veteran Head.

    The club is planning to send crews to Veteran Nationals at Nottingham in June, Veteran  Henley in July and the World meet in Trakai, Lithuania in September.

    We expect a significant number of wins.

    As the club is operating an inclusive policy, we have had the benefit of training with the senior squad under the professionally led coaching team, headed by Ian South.

    We are always looking to expand the group and welcome newcomers.

    There is an opportunity to do as much training as you want, but also the benefit of being able to take a weekend off for less vigorous activities, without the risk of being dropped.

    If you are considering getting back into a boat and rekindle the old competitive spirit, please contact Birgith via email to xxx or leave a message in the club letter rack.
