About the Club
We offer a relaxed, warm atmosphere with the ambition to achieve great things – promoting rowing in the local community and race results. We pride ourselves on having the equipment and club structure to be able to cater for rowers with different skill levels and ambition. Whatever your background get in touch!
If you are new to rowing, we recommend you complete a Learn to Row course run by British Rowing qualified coaches at the Hillingdon Outdoor Activity Centre (HOAC). You will pick up the basics of the sport quickly and be able to start rowing in racing boats with us.
In accordance with the direction of the sport’s governing body, British Rowing, we have suspended all activities to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. We hope to be back in operation as soon as possible.
We row on a lake in the Colne Valley Regional Park, located between Denham and Harefield, a couple of miles from the M25 at J16. Changing rooms, toilets and car parking are all available at the site.
We have a vibrant, active masters section competing round the year in both the regatta season and in head races over the winter.
We are currently developing 2 Novice women’s squads, a quad and a double.
Our junior section and squads are being set up to ensure everyone gets racing experience in, ready to hit the 2020 regattas with strong crews. If you’re new to rowing, we’ll refer you to HOAC to complete a Learn to Row course and attend progression club before joining HRC.

These squads are for those who prefer to row for social and general fitness and rowers will have the opportunity to compete in the Sunday Rowing League throughout the year.
As with any club, we are always in need of coxes! If you’re a good motivator and want to see rowing from a different angle, get in touch.
We encourage our members to follow training programmes to help build fitness and core strength.
Many of our crews have competed in both regattas and head races and we have had wins and crew members winning points. Look at our club calendar to find out more about what’s coming up. Browse our news archives to find out what we have been up to.
