Started by Post Office workers on 12th February 1890, Cygnet RC is a small, friendly rowing club based at the Civil Service Boat House in the shadow of Barnes Railway Bridge. As the name of our boathouse implies, we're a Civil Service club but you don't have to be a Civil Servant to join.
Cygnet Rowing Club welcomes new oarsmen of all abilities – from the experienced novice to the Henley aspirant -– and has a coached training program that can be adapted to suit all standards. Our well-maintained fleet is also suitable for all standards.
Our approach has proved successful from qualifying senior boats for events at Henley Royal Regatta to tasting victory at novice level at local regattas with our less experienced oarsmen. Cygnet also runs Learn to Row courses for complete beginners during the year and
