Welcome to Gloucester Rowing Club

Gloucester Rowing Club is one of the oldest established rowing clubs in Great Britain and is now based on the Sharpness-Gloucester canal where it enjoys one of the longest stretches of unlocked water in the country. It has enjoyed considerable success both at a local and national level over the years and a number of National Squad members started their rowing careers at Gloucester.
The club caters not only for those whose aim is to take their rowing to the highest level, but also for the many who wish to be competitive at national or regional regattas as well as for those who want to use their rowing as part of a social and healthy life style.

Gloucester-Hartpury quad triumphs at Henley

The Gloucester-Hartpury crew of Alice Bowyer, Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne, Flo Pickles and Jessica Newson with fellow Gloucester rower Beth Rodford.

Gloucester-Hartpury scooped its first ever title at British rowing's premier event - Henley Royal Regatta - as the Under-18s girls quad bounced back from a nasty crash to claim glory.

On the morning of the final, the crew of Alice Bowyer, Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne, Jessica Newson and Flo Pickles crashed with a moored boat and snapped three oars in their warm-up row.

Luckily, they all escaped uninjured and if they were shaken by the crash, they didn’t show it, recording a comfortable four-length victory to scoop the Diamond Jubilee Challenge cup - a new trophy awarded for the first time in 2014 for the winning Under-18s female crew in the competition's 175th year.

Sport England Award for Club Development

Gloucester Boathouse is set to receive £500,000 towards an environmentally sustainable new facility for rowing & canoeing at Hempsted thanks to National Lottery funding from Sport England's Improvement Fund.

The new facility is one of 23 projects across England to share in £7.3 million of Lottery investment from the latest round of funding, which focused on minimising the environmental impact of sports facilities by investing in sustainable projects with a clear local need.
