An introduction to rowing at City of Sunderland Rowing Club

Located at South Hylton on the River Wear, this small competitive club has the facilities and coaching expertise to help you get started and enjoy a taste of rowing in a team.

You will be welcomed to the club and given some initial coaching and warm up exercises, following this and weather permitting you will take to the water in stable rowing boats. After the rowing session everyone will help out to get the boats out of the water and give them a clean before storing them back in the clubhouse. A de-brief and refreshments will conclude the activity.

You are advised to wear suitable clothing - comfortable sports bottoms/ leggings and tops - layered clothing is best and a waterproof/ windproof jacket if you have one. Wellies will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE: A Station Taxis minibus will run from Park Lane Interchange (pick up time 17.45HRS) to the Rowing Club, returning to pick you up and drop you back off at Park Lane Interchange when the session ends (drop off 20.30HRS).
