Welcome to Milton Keynes Rowing Club
Milton Keynes Rowing Club (MKRC) is based at Caldecotte Lake on the south side of the city, at the Water Sports Centre on Monellan Grove (map). We share access to the lake (which gives us around a 1 kilometre straight run) and a clubhouse with the Milton Keynes Sailing and Canoe Clubs.
We have an active Summer and Winter Programme of races, events and training schedules, weekends and mid-week, as well as social functions. This covers both water training (both rowing and sculling) and land based training (circuits and rowing machines).
Membership is varied and we encourage all levels of rowing and sculling ability, from experienced rowers to complete newcomers to the sport (for whom we run Learn to Row courses). We welcome people of all ages, now including a thriving junior section. We also welcome supporters who perhaps may wish to take their sport a little less seriously or just help with the club's activities.
So if you want to try out a new sport or rediscover the enjoyment of rowing and sculling, just come on down to the club during one of the training sessions where you will receive a friendly welcome or contact us by e-mail.
If you do intend dropping in, please check our race schedule first, to make sure we will be there!

Cross Channel Row 2013
Cross Channel Row 2013Massive congratulations to the two MK crews who completed the grueling 22 mile row across the Channel on Sunday 28th April.
Both crews contained rowers from Milton Keynes Rowing Club and our charity partners at MK Dons Sports Education Trust. The all ladies crew completed the row in an amazing 5 hours 14 minutes, taking a huge 10 minutes of the previous fastest time for an all female crew, becoming record holders. The second, mixed, crew were just a minute behind, finishing with a time of 5 hours 15 minutes.
So far, the crews have raised a wonderful £12,300 between them - there's still time to donate and you can do so on-line here
