Fred at St. Neots Regatta Our membership is varied and we encourage all levels of rowing ability, from experienced rowers to complete newcomers to the sport. We welcome people of all ages (from 16 years upwards), as well as non-rowing supporters who perhaps may wish to take their rowing a little less seriously or just help with the club's activities.

Membership Policy

Racking is available to full annual members and is subject to availability

Friends of MKRC: provides a way for former members to maintain a connection to the club. You will receive occasional updates by email

These conditions are in place to allow annual income to be estimated, which is vital for a non-profit making organisation in order to meet it’s obligations for rent, insurance etc. Membership fees are based on these annual running costs rather than being calculated per month. Many members take a significant percentage of the year off for a variety reasons: if membership were to be reduced or suspended at these times, there would be a need to increase membership fees in order to offset the loss of income. Grants and fundraising are also essential to keep the fees at their low level. 

We hope members understand this and appreciate that the fees represent exceptional value in relation to the excellent facilities and equipment available.
