Welcome to Northampton Rowing Club

NRC is a small friendly club affiliated to British Rowing and are based on a 3km stretch of the River Nene. In 2009 we completed the first stage of replacing an ageing boatstore with a new facility. The new boathouse provides storage for our coaching launches and a full variety of boats ranging from single sculls to eights. The building also accomodates 10 rowing machines and also includes a shower and toilet. The second stage of the project will see a first floor added, allowing us to offer improved facilities including a gym and a club house.

First phase of new boathouse completed in October 2009
-->
We have approximately 1800m rowable river downstream and 1000m upstream
We attend time trials (Heads) that include the Head of the River Race held on the Thames...
...we also attend regattas including some at Eton Dorney and Henley...
...and enjoy success (Henley Masters Regatta - July 2014)
...Star Regatta - June 2015
We hold our own time trial (head) too in late January every year
We try to have fun too!

The Club also host the Malcolm Arnold Academy, the University of Northampton Rowing Club, Northampton High School and Stowe School Boat Club.

We share some facilities with the Nene Whitewater Centre which is also home to the Northampton Canoe and Kayak Club. Within the centre are full changing and showering facilities and a café.

Although we are a small club, we are active all year round with races, events and social activities. Training takes place at weekends (mornings) and weekday evenings (Tuesdays and Thursdays). We have a varied membership with some members having competed at national events such as Henley Royal Regatta, Henley Women's Regatta, The National Schools Regatta and The National Rowing Championships of Great Britain.

Watching our rowers do so well may have inspired you to try rowing, sculling or coxing! Please see our come try it and rowing course pages for further details on how to get involved.

Join In!

NRC is ran as a not for profit club by volunteers and we're always looking for new people to help run the club. It's immensely satisfying to help out whether it be coaching, running indoor training session or even tending to the grounds. Your efforts could be rewarded by seeing a group reach a particular goal or a first win at an event (we can even arrange courses for aspiring coaches). Or it could be just being part the club's growth and success. If you'd like to play some part then please don't hesitate to get in touch with the chairman.
