Abingdon Rowing Club has a large Masters (formerly known as Veterans) group of rowers. Dedicated to enjoying themselves, the group welcomes rowers with all levels of experience and ability and offers rowing to suit all levels, from recreational / occasional to full competitive racing at international levels. In the last few years, we’ve had wins at National Masters and Henley Masters regattas (crews have included some members who only learnt to row in the last 5 years) and have had representatives at the World Masters regatta. We also compete regularly at UK regattas in the summer and head races in the winter.
It is just as important to us to support individuals and crews who prefer to stay on our beautiful stretch of water with regular or occasional sessions, not racing but enjoying the activity, the companionship, the (occasional) tranquility and the (lively) wildlife. It keeps us fit, keeps us healthy and keeps the mind working.
So, whatever your ability level and whatever your ambition from rowing, you’ll be assured of a very warm and enthusiastic welcome at Abingdon Rowing Club. The Masters row on Saturday and Sunday mornings through the year and add evening rowing in the summer months.
If you are interested in joining the Masters group, please speak to Adam Hagar, Men’s Vice-Captain.
