British rowing world class start

The University of York is one of 12 World Class Start centres in the UK. The boathouse is situated less than 10 minutes from university campus and offers access to 23km of uninterrupted river.


Staff & Community

We set up our staff and community branch of the club to encourage uni staff and local residents to learn a new skill and keep fit, plus to entice experienced rowers back on to the water for some fun recreational paddling and local racing! The club is run by volunteers, frequently assisted by our lovely student rowers, coxes and coaches. We really enjoy the relaxed paddling in the summer evenings after work, and love to see the city from a different perspective.
