First boat in the new boathouse. Only to help us build the racks, but it’s a start.
Our first-Sunday-of-the-month beginner rowing taster sessions are featured on the BBC Get Inspired site.
Quite a few people have asked for more guidance about coxing. Alastair found this crib sheet which all coxes should find useful.
We are excited to offer four Swift Freedom Touring boats for hire through the British Rowing Explore programme.
Boats come on a trailer with the oars. We rig the boats as coxed fours or coxed quads on demand. Explore boats specification.
Please make your request to firstname.lastname@example.org at least five days in advance, with collection and return dates. Once we accept your booking we will request online payment of the booking fee, which is £100 per day.
We have a delivery checklist with instructions for rigging and loading the trailer.
Upon collection and return we check the boats, noting any missing or damaged items. GGBC insure all boats. The hirer pays the first £250 in costs for missing or damaged items. For damage caused in transit, for example due to broken straps, the hirer is liable for the first £500.
We do not ask for a security deposit and GGBC tries to make repairs at minimal cost. We aim to stay below the insurance excesses noted above.
We have a new Corporate Rowing flyer. Please let your friends and colleagues know. We make money to fit out the new boathouse while giving people a great experience.
