Explore Boat Hire

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.

Please make your request to boatbookings@goringgapbc.org.uk 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.
