Thank you for your interest in Vesta Rowing Club. You’ve probably heard of us because we’re known internationally as the friendliest club on the Tideway. It’s true that you’ll get a fantastic welcome if you wander into our bar, but above all else we take our rowing pretty seriously too.
The rowing season runs from early September through to early July and we train on average 8x per week. Saturday and Sunday mornings are on the water for 2x sessions with a break in between, usually wrapped up by noon. Monday through to Thursday evening members typically have land training sessions comprised of a mix of weights, ergos and other cross training. Friday is a rest day.
Our Director of Rowing, Dan Safdari, heads an experienced coaching team. Dan has rowed at national and European level and is already setting a training programme that will be both arduous and ambitious, and will ensure that we are highly competitive.
We have a fantastic range of boats, including Empachers, Filippis and Hudsons, a great training environment and welcoming, lively social life at the club. Above all rowing and racing at Vesta means that you are part of a real rowing club – not a factory – where we hope you can enjoy an entire rowing career, make great mates and contribute to this great club.
If you are interested in joining Vesta please register your interest below and one of our coaches will get in touch to have a chat. Please note: we are no longer accepting beginners for the current season. Our next available learn to row programme will be in summer 2017.
