About the Club

The river Wye at Monmouth is perhaps one of the most attractive stretches or rowing river in the country with 2500 metres of summer rowing (without any powered boats) and in the winter a 6km row is possible at most times

2 km upstream

The club caters not only for those whose aim is to be competitive at national or regional regattas but also for those who want to participate in rowing as part of a social and healthy life style.
 

Monmouth also has three school rowing clubs (Haberdasher’s Boys, Girls and the Comprehensive School) who all row on the same stretch of river.

Haberdashers Girls and the Comprehensive School rowing clubs share the boathouse with Monmouth and share the other facilities of the gym and club room.
