About Cygnet RC

FAQs   The Captaincy   Management Committee   Club officers   Club History   Cygnet 300 club

Started by Post Office workers on 12th February 1890, Cygnet Rowing Club is a small, friendly rowing club based at the Civil Service Boat House in the shadow of Barnes Railway Bridge. As the name of our boat house implies, we're a Civil Service club but you don't have to be a Civil Servant to join.

Cygnet Rowing Club welcomes new oarsmen of all abilities – from the experienced novice to the Henley aspirant - and has a coached training program that can be adapted to suit all standards. Our approach has proved successful – in 2011 Cygnet qualified two crew boats for Henley Royal Regatta (a Thames Cup Eight and Silver Goblets pair) whilst also tasting victory at novice level with our less experienced oarsmen.

Cygnet also runs Learn to Row courses for complete beginners during the year – for more information please visit our Learn to Row page.

Note that Cygnet Rowing Club is predominantly a men’s club because we share our boathouse with our sister rowing club Barnes Bridge Ladies (BBLRC) who specifically cater for women rowers. BBLRC also run Learn to Row courses and welcome more experienced new members. Please visit: BBLRC for more information.
