Masters rowing plays an important role in contributing to the vibrancy and inclusiveness of the Cambridge Rowing Club. We cater for all levels of Masters including learn to row, recreational and competitive rowers (you are never too old to race!). Currently, our Master rowers range in age from 27 - 80 years and it is not unusual for the upper age range to be training hard for upcoming regattas. We have a good range of boats and equipment available for Masters at our Lake Karapiro clubrooms.
At the end of the learn-to-row course (LTR) you will hopefully wish to continue rowing. When you take out a full membership, we will credit the amount paid for your LTR against the cost of a Masters subscription. As a Novice Master rower, your coaching will continue until you are fully ready to move on in the club as a Masters Competitive and/or Recreational rower. You will have the opportunity to develop your rowing skills and confidence by mixing with experienced rowers at our Roll Up & Row sessions.
Cambridge Rowing Club has Masters rowers who row both recreationally and competitively. It is a very social group who welcome new members. Masters members row regularly on Saturday mornings and enjoy a social catch-up afterwards at the Podium cafe, a very short walk from the club. The water on the lake is rowable on the majority of days during both summer and winter; a number of rowers hit the water every morning before going home for breakfast and off to work.
Racing isn't the sole preserve of youger rowers. Many masters compete in 2,000m formal regattas while others choose to row in some of the more social regattas that are available. All levels of skill are catered for at the social regattas and there are times when the ability to enjoy a nice glass of crisp white is equally important as having won a race a little earlier in the day.
So if you feel this is you, contact Belle or Jo - See you soon!
