Welcome to Swanage Sea Rowing Club, a community project dedicated to promoting rowing as a social activity. Find out about us and how to have some fun in boats in this site! Everyone is welcome at the Club and we aim to offer opportunities for our members to benefit from rowing in a way that suits them - whether socially, for fitness or to race in regattas, whether you are a junior rower or retired....


Sidmouth July 12th.


A great day was had by all at Sidmouth's second Regatta with several crews including some novices who had a taste of racing at their first event. Sidmouth put on an excellent day with good weather and all SSRC members took the opportunity to enjoy the best about these events including meeting old friends, making new ones and having a row too. We also managed some surprising results with the mens B coming third in the A race. Looking forward to it next year!

Be part of a world record! 

Ever fancied putting a world record under your belt? Want to know what it feels like to be the best in the world? Or just want to achieve your personal best? This is your chance. 

Max Burridge and Skip Graham of Swanage Sea Rowing Club will each be attempting to break Solo 1 million-metre indoor rowing records. Having smashed the tandem record for Children in Need last year they are going for world record number two and they want you to join them. 
Whether you would like to break a record of your own (you don’t have to do 1 million metres!) or just fancy challenging yourself to complete a record distance. 
This is an opportunity that doesn’t come around very often. Get yourself and maybe a team together, and get training. Teams can be of nearly any age, size and ability. 

Next meet - Friday 25th July 5pm onwards at boathouse, racing starts at 6.

Carpenters Cups are back on a monthly basis and open to all club members. Please view the events list for future dates - Everyone welcome!

You will have complete freedom to choose a challenge that suits you. Be it a large team doing just 20 minutes each or a tandem 24-hour row you are bound to find something that suits you. Full instruction on use of the rowing machines will be given. 

This event is held with thanks to Swanage Sea Rowing club for the use of their brand new boathouse and facilities located on Prince Albert Gardens near the pier.

French Exchange!

On the weekend of the 8th/9th June SSRC we welcomed 10 experienced rowers from ACVP Rowing Club (Aviron Club Villennes Poissy) on the Seine who visited to try rowing traditional wooden Pilot Gigs. A fantastic time was had by all.- we are looking to do it again next year! Superb!
