General Overview of NRC
Newquay Rowing Club (NRC), established in 1921, is the oldest club on the gig rowing circuit (see History).
Based at Newquay Harbour, NRC is a thriving club, open all year round providing Newquay and the surrounding area with recreational and social opportunities.
NRC has over 600 members of all ages (men, women and juniors) many can be seen out on the water most days of the week during the rowing season (April - Sept) whether it be racing against other clubs, amongst themselves or just training for such events.
There are many races throughout the season, (see fixtures) held over a 2 mile, triangular course in Newquay Bay. During the winter, rowing is reduced to just training at the weekend in our 2 fibreglass replica gigs, whilst our fleet of 8 traditional Cornish Pilot Gigs are given some much needed care and attention.
Newquay Rowing Club
Regular social and charity events are organised throughout the year (not just the rowing season), when friends old and new get together for drinks, a sing-song and a good time. There is entertainment every Saturday night with regular fun events such as horse racing nights, coffee mornings, slide shows and performances by the Newquay Rowing Club Singers all raising money for local charities. (See Clubhouse for more info)
So come down and watch the rowing, have a drink and meet new friends at Newquay Rowing Club.
