Who Are We?

Welcome to the Yare Boat Club, the oldest rowing club in Norwich - and possibly Norfolk. Based on the River Yare at Thorpe Island, we are a friendly, fully equipped club with up-to-date equipment and facilities, offering sculling and rowing not only for the competitive athlete, but also for the recreational rower who likes to keep fit whilst enjoying the river. New members, and those who are interested in trying the sport, are always welcome along to our taster sessions and Learn to Row courses.

The club has members of all ages and experience, from those who row recreationally, to others who train and compete in the various events hosted in the Eastern Region and nationally - often obtaining fantastic results. Rowing is a great form of exercise for all round fitness and we have a full programme of fun social activities throughout the year, both on and off the water.

Annually, the club hosts its own head race on the River Yare. This normally occurs around the end of September with clubs from across the Eastern Region travelling to enjoy a good day of racing.

If you want to find out more please get in touch and we can arrange a good time for you to visit the club.
