Rowing at Derby. 


We are proud to be able to offer our rowing and non-rowing members access to high-quality, well maintained equipment. 

Our fleet includes recreational and racing shells, – with singles, pairs, doubles, quads, fours and eights suitable for a wide range of sizes and abilities. Our boat house can also accomodate privately owned boats. For information on racking a private boat, please contact the Club Captain at 

We have access to a quiet 2000m stretch on the River Derwent, and two aluminum launches for our team of dedicated qualified coaches to get close to our crews on the water. We have two club trailers; one large and one small to give flexibility to crews wishing to travel to events around the country. 

Our land training facilities boast 8 brand new Concept II Model D static rowing machines, 4 Concept II dynamic rowing machines and a Wattbike for cross-training purposes. Our boathouse includes a small weightlifting area, complete with squat rack, bench press, pull and a leg press machine, alongside a wide range of Olympic bars, weights and other circuit training based equipment.
