About us

Goring Gap Boat Club is one of the largest recreational boating clubs in the Thames Valley. Membership is open to all, from youngsters gaining their first rowing experience to veterans with a life time on the river.

Beginners are assured of a warm welcome, and a relaxed and safe introduction to the sport. No previous experience is required, and we provide tuition to all our new members.

The club’s aims are simple – “…to make it possible for members to enjoy unpowered boating….”.

Over the years it’s estimated that 1500 rowers have taken to the water under the guidance of GGBC, many of them competing in the ever popular Goring and Streatley Regatta.

Goring Gap Boat Club Limited

Goring Gap Boat Club recently became Goring Gap Boat Club Limited, for the purpose of limiting the liability of the Club management committee and trustees when signing contracts for the building and running of the new boathouse.
