Mind the gap: Goring boat club

Round & About

Goring Gap Boat Club is offering new opportunities for those who want to row their own sculls on this beautiful, quiet stretch of the Thames.

Our local community rowing club is soon to move to its new site and clubhouse, located off the A329 in Lower Basildon near Streatley and Goring.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the new clubhouse is next to Gatehampton railway bridge. The team at the helm are busily planning for rowing from the new site to start in early January.

Racking is also expected to be available at the start of this month; members will be able to rack their own singles at a cost of £250 per year and fees for annual membership are just £100 per year, meaning you can take advantage of racking and the pleasure of rowing on this beautiful stretch of river, between Goring Lock and Whitchurch Lock, for just £350 per year.

The club is already taking reservations from existing members and those who would like to join, on a first-come first-served basis. If you would be interested in discussing renting rack space in the new boathouse please email [email protected]

• Why not get on board this year to enjoy recreational rowing as a hobby?
