New Boathouse

Latest status: 12th May 2018

In 2017 we began building our first boathouse with the support of the Yattendon Estate, Sport England, theĀ  Greenham Common Trust and various other funding bodies.

It provides access to a wide, 6km stretch of the Thames between Goring Lock and Whitchurch Lock in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There is a significant straight stretch suitable for side-by-side racing/coaching. The river is shared only with Pangbourne College Boat Club.

The new GGBC Boathouse is located off the A329 in Lower Basildon near Streatley and Goring, next to Gatehampton railway bridge.

Goring Train Station (Reading/ Oxford Line) is 3.5km North. Pangbourne Station on the same line is 4km South. Oxford is a 40 min drive. Reading can be reached in 25 mins.

Renting Racking Space

The Club’s new Boathouse will provide indoor boat storage on a beautiful and quiet stretch of the Thames. One of the 4 Boathouse Bays will be set-aside for third-party boats. The Club is already taking reservations from individuals* and clubs for this space on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would be interested in discussing renting rack space in the new Boathouse from January 2019, please send an e-mail to the Captains of Boats.

* Note: Individuals wishing to rack private boats in the Club’s boathouse will also have to be Club Members.
