Where do we Row?
Our rowing takes place on the beautiful Helford River launching from Pedn Billy Beach or Helford Passage Beach outside of the Ferry Boat Inn. Generally we row between the mouth of the river and Tremaine Quay and including the creeks that run off the main river. The two plastic training gigs are beached on Pedn Billy which is privately owned by Nigel and Tom Bligh, who kindly allow us to store the boats here which allows us to launch boats safely throughout the year in all weathers.
Urschela's Shed, Ferry Boat Beach
We share 'Urschela’s Shed' on Ferryboat Beach with Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust (HRCST). We call it the 'Oarshed' and it's here that we store safety equipment (VHF Radios, Lifejackets, First Aid Kits, boat sea safety bags) and spare oars. There are also two changing rooms and power supplies for making cups of tea in those cold winter months! Toilet facilities are kindly provided by the Ferry Boat Inn.
Our clubhouse is in Gweek and has two function rooms with bar and fully equipped kitchen. The clubhouse also has a small fitness room, including free-weights, 6 x Concept-2 rowing machines and a cross trainer. The gym can be used by club members and available slots can viewed on the web site or booked via the Slots Coordinator. The clubhouse facilities also include a boat shed, a boat container, ample parking, and a large field. The full address of the clubhouse is: Chapel Hill, Gweek, Helston, TR12 7AE.
Here is the calendar of regular bookings that we have for the clubhouse. Please contact the committee for any booking enquiries.
