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.

British Rowing Masters Championships - 13th & 14th June 2015

Eight KRC women represented us at the British Rowing Masters Championships at Nottingham. Despite a thoroughly very wet day, the lake was about as flat as I have ever seen it - most unusual for Nottingham. This event has Championship, IM3 and Novice events all for Masters rowers (27 years old+) and is raced over 1000m.

We had entries in eight events and won gold in three of these:

  • Women's Championship A 4x- Emma Scruby, Sophie Faldo, Caroline Willett and Rachael Kugele (str). The crew had a great race as they were very close at half way but pulled out a really strong second half to win by clear water.
  • Women's Championship F/G 2x Birgith Sims and Jackie Darling of BBRLC (str). Despite being one age category older than their three opponents, they pulled away from the field to win by a huge margin, sculling with beautiful efficiency.
  • Women's Novice A 1x Wendy Saunders. If you are going to win your novice pot, a championship regatta is a good place to do it.

In all, six of the eight KRC rowers won a gold medal, and we were just 3/4 length off winning the W Nov B 4x- which would have been gold for the other two.

Champ A 4x Gold

Champ FG 2x Gold
