NEWPORT ROWING CLUB
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW SEASON
Newport Rowing Club crews are training harder than ever and looking forward to the Head Race season. A number of the club's juniors will be competing at the Isle of Wight Rowing Forum indoor event at Ryde R.C on Sunday 10th February, and for many it will be their first ever competitive outing. Most crews are training five nights per week, including Tuesday's gruelling circuit sessions, and then putting in around three hours on the water on Sundays.
If you are interested in coming along to Newport for a free try-out, please see the diary of club sessions on the "training" page of this site, identify one that fits with your schedule and come along to see us. You'll be assured of a warm welcome.

Welcome to Newport Rowing Club
Newport is a relatively small, but friendly rowing club located in the capital town of the Isle of Wight. As the only island club to be based on the river Medina, we can offer calm, sheltered waters on which newcomers to the sport will feel safe. The gently sloping riverbank and excellent visibility, combined with minimal river traffic make Newport an ideal club for juniors wishing to try this fantastic sport. The club premises are situated adjacent to woodland and riverside parks, and there are a network of footpaths and cycleways nearby. The balcony of our clubhouse looks out over the Medina, and affords magnificent views along the river. You will also find ample space for your car in our own private, free car park.
The longest established rowing club on the island, having been founded in 1863, Newport are affliated to the Hants and Dorset ARA and British Rowing and were part of the founding membership of the Isle of Wight Rowing Forum. We offer rowing at all levels, and this ranges from the pleasure and natural fitness benefits of social rowing, to racing in regattas at various locations along the south coast.
Newport Rowing Club holds a very successful annual regatta, which attracts visiting clubs from all over the southern area. This includes a full programme from novices to seniors. The club regularly sends crews to events throughout the May-September season, and with a flourishing junior section we are able to submit youngsters for potential selection to the Wessex regional squad.
The club is situated near the start of the Newport to Cowes cycleway, behind the veterinary hospital at Manners View, on the Riverway industrial estate. The lane to the club is immediately to the right of the large white gate at the top of the cycleway. Follow the lane for approximately 100 metres before turning right in to our car park.
