This is such a great club with members from all walks of life and from a range of different countries, giving it a nice international spin. At one point one of our members was having his birthday and we were singing 'happy birthday' while rowing on the Thames in 4 different languages:)

RBBC consists of a great bunch of people who do different jobs, from varied backgrounds and, have many commitments but all are united in the fact whatever time you row - morning or night - when you get on the river you become one with the rhythm of the boat, the natural surroundings and get exercise to boot!

Patty Pann

Rowing on the Thames is fabulous: the views from the river are amazing and keep changing as you move across the water, the tide comes in, the sun sets... the boats themselves are authentic and beautiful, the exercise is good for your physical and the pub stops for your mental health and the connections you make with fellow rowers are the cherry on the pie.
