  • Tides for the week ahead
    Rachel reports: A cold week behind us, another cold week ahead. The chat this past weekend focused on recommendations on winter rowing gloves! We all felt it in the hands, but lovely calm waters and interesting skies kept us going!! 

    A certain young lady we all know celebrated a milestone birthday with her first row with us on Saturday (see photo), and did so well. What better way to start a birthday? Happy Birthday F!!

    The festive menu and pre-order form have been sent out to you all by email - can they be returned to me please.  I can then collate and give to the Hawes. Marion or myself will let you know when and where to pay the deposit money.

  • Tides for the week ahead, Nov 6 to 12
    Rachel reports: All is well for rowing each day this week, although better from late morning Mon/Tues/Wed for anyone planning a midweek row. The photo below is from a row on Saturday morning, and crews on Sunday encountered the same conditions: the water around Inchgarvie is calm, but off the eastern end of the island it's all swirling currents and wavelets, quite fun to row in! You can feel whirlpool-like currents grab the boat. More photos on Flickr. Also on Flickr, photos of the cox training on Saturday afternoon

  • Forthcoming tides
    Rachel reports: As we leave October, we have completed the last of the SCRA events at stunning Loch Tummel yesterday, and as a club we are delighted to have contributed greatly to the SE region's win of the annual trophy. It was a very satisfying way to leave a successful season behind and move onwards into November.

    We are now back on GMT, and the tides are good for us for the next few weeks. Pictured right is an encounter on Sunday with North Queensferry - all agreed it was a wonderful day for a row!

Queensferry Rowing Club is an affiliate of the Scottish Coastal Rowing AssociationThe SCRA was formed on the 29th of May 2010 to restart Coastal Rowing and Racing across Scotland. Communities are invited to form a club, which will then build a skiff from scratch, before joining the wider community of clubs for a range of friendly and competitive rowing across Scotland.

Queensferry Rowing Club is home to two skiffs: Ferry Maid and Ferry Lass. We are based out of Port Edgar and hope to welcome anyone who is interested in taking part. If you wish to have a go, please feel free to just come along at one of our usual times or contact a member of the committee. See the menu on the left for links to more information.
