Trafford RC has been rowing on the Bridgewater Canal since 1957 and is the only rowing club in South Manchester. We are a growing, friendly club who row competitively as well as just for fun or fitness. We do take our racing seriously, but we don't take ourselves so seriously that we lose the friendly atmosphere of our club. New members are made to feel welcome and we have active recreational, veteran, and junior sections, as well as the men's and women's senior squads.
Latest News section. Or why not have a look at our new Club Kit web page? We have details of all of Trafford RC's results on our Race Results page, and you can see who has won Trafford RC's own awards and honours on our new Club Awards page. We also have a dedicated Junior Rowing web page. We are hoping to have more photos and even video streaming in the not too distant future, but in the meantime please feel free to browse our website.
If you are an experienced oarsman, or if you just want to have a go one weekend, please contact the Captain via the Club Contacts page.
Simon and I entered Henley Masters this year,with the aim of getting through to Saturday. With some good training sessions in the weeks beforehand we were quietly confident that we could do well.

Congratulations to Andy Sykes and Simon Weeks winning D2x at Henley Masters. This is the first ever Henley win for the rowing club.
More to follow.........
Those of you down at the weekend will see that the fence has now been erected on the towpath and unfortunately no padlock has been provided. However, the compound at the end of car park by the model railway is permanently manned by a security guard, who is happy to unbolt the fence to allow access.
Membership renewal / declaration
I have updated the membership forms and had them uploaded to the website.
As per my previous note, anyone new to the club is required to download a membership form (first 2 options), complete and return to your Vice Captain or leave in the folder at the back of the boat house (next to the blue steps).
Anyone continuing with their membership or returning to the club after a break is required to complete the online form (3rd option).
Completion of the forms (electronic or paper based) is a requirement for EVERYONE and I would urge you to take 4 mins to complete this task rather than waiting for me to send your name out on a list of people who need to complete to continue using the equipment.
Any questions as ever please let me know

As we draw to a close on the current membership year, here are the details of fees for the forthcoming membership year ...

year. Part year payments (with the exception of the summer student offer)
are not offered.
After a number of downpours earlier in the week the sun certainly did not let us down. What a Scorcher……This was the first Regatta for a number of Juniors with entries in for W.J11.2x and W.J11.1x crews. It was also my first Regatta without the support of the other Junior coaches. Some left the country and others went to the extreme of entering a Triathlon, others even decided that work was a far better option for the day. Come on guys, my jokes are not that bad…..

We have now received confirmation that the towpath works will start on Monday June 30th. The towpath will not be accessible for a 12 week period and works not schedule to be completed until 19 September.
The towpath is to be upgraded from Marsland Road Bridge through to the path opposite Budenberg buildings. Ultimately, it will make the towpath a better place but will obviously cause some impact during the works.
