St Ives is a pretty, historic market town on the Great River Ouse in Cambridgeshire (not Cornwall!!). Although the town was formerly known as Slepe, we do anything but!

The rowing club, founded by a GP, Dr. Grove, around 1865, has a proud history of competitive rowing, producing some outstanding athletes on the national and international scene. This, however, should not put anyone off joining the club. We also have novice (beginners) oarsmen and women, and a thriving group of junior and social members.

The club now occupies its second location in St Ives in a building formerly used as a grain store purchased from Mervyn Cootes, a businessman, & overlooks the picturesque Hemingford water meadow. The club is run by the trustees and a group of volunteers from the membership & aims to promote rowing in St Ives and the surrounding area.

International Women's day 2020.
Almost 60 years after the club voted in 1962, to accept women members. Lewis Clarke (pictured centre) who was captain on that momentous day catches up with some of the current ladies squad.

A wining start the year at Peterborough's Head of the Nene in what can only be described as atrocious conditions.

Wins for Rosie & Jess (WJ16 2x), Paul, Benny, Iain (Huntingdon BC) & Gary (Mas 4x-). A good 2nd place for Rory, Alfie, Connor & Sam (Open 4x-) and 3rd places for Mat & Tom (J15 2x) and David (Band 1 1x).

Congratulations goes to everyone who was mad enough just to get into a boat and row to the start. 😂😂
