To book for rowing sessions and events or purchase RBBC branded clothing please use the RBBC (Glofox) App which you can download to your smart phone (there is a web version too). Full instructions are provided below:

How to install the app

When you first install the app you will need to set your password so follow these steps once you have installed the app:

On the first screen when asked for the business name, please use “RBBC”.

    3. Register as a new member
    4. Select the circie in the top left hand corner
    5. Select “Payments”

    7. Select “Memberships”
    8. View and buy “Taster membership”
    9. Select “Timetable” then “Classes” and swipe across to the date you want to row and select the row

How to book a row

  2. Select “Classes”
  3. Swipe across to the date you want to row
  4. Click to select the row
  5. At the bottom tap “Book” – the app will then confirm your booking.

Bookings MUST be made before 8pm on the Monday of the week you wish to row to guarantee you a place on the boat.

How to view my bookings

  1. Open the RBBC app
  2. Click on the calendar icon at the top

This will show you which rows you have booked for.

How to cancel a booking

  1. Click on the calendar icon at the top of the app to view your bookings
  2. Select the booking you wish to cancel
  3. Then at the bottom tap “Cancel Booking” – the app will then confirm your cancellation.
  4. Notify your cox and crew in the comments section of the “pinned post” on the RBBC Facebook members group.

Any cancellations MUST be communicated to your cox, crew and the rowing co-ordinators via the “pinned post” in order to free up the space for others who may wish to row on that date as well as allowing the coxes to adjust their session plans accordingly.

How to Cancel or Join a Row (on the day)

If you are cancelling or joining a row that is taking place within 24 hours, you cannot do this purely through the App. Instead:

  1. Go to the “pinned post” at the top of the RBBC Facebook members group
  2. Check who your Duty Cox is on the weekly schedule OR if there are any spaces on the row you wish to join
  3. Go to the comments section and notify your cox of your cancellation OR ask if there are any spaces for a particular row

Any cancellations or requests to join a row MUST be communicated to your cox, crew and the rowing co-ordinators in order to not only free up the space for others who may wish to row on that date but to allow the coxes to adjust their session plans accordingly.

Do I still get email notifications

Yes – an email is sent to all members each Tuesday lunchtime by the Rowing Coordinator with details of who is rowing that week.

What if I don't have a smartphone? Can I book online?

No problem! You can login online instead – just click the button below (if it’s your first time using it, you’ll need to go through the same set up process explained above as for the app – see ‘How to Install the App’):

Can I arrange a rowing session independently?

As a member and a regular cox you can take a boat out for a private event for free. You need to book with the rowing coordinator at least two weeks prior to your scheduled outing and it is subject to availability of boats.
