Rowing schedule

Winter social session times for 2018/19:

Saturday at 9am

Sunday at 1pm

All rowing is subject to tides, weather, or the boats being away at an external event. During the winter months, members will often organise morning or afternoon outings via the group email. In the summer months, evening sessions are added on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm.

If you would like to join us, come down to the club hut at Port Edgar (click on About Queensferry Rowing Club for directions) to join one of our social sessions, please contact Anne P on or Lesley (click on New Members for her details) before your first session to ensure it is on.

A typical social rowing session

Race training sessions are held during the winter on Saturdays at 8am (and sometimes 7am!) and Sundays at 11am, with an extra session during the summer on Wednesdays at 6pm – again the timings depend on tides and weather.

The training sessions focus on technique and stamina, and can be very demanding physically. You’ll learn to perform a racing start and racing buoy turns. A typical regatta race is 2km long – pretty much the distance between the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Bridge and back. We will sometimes row a longer course to build up stamina. If that sounds like your cup of tea, contact Sharon to be included in the race training emails and Doodle poll:

It's great fun, honestly!
