New Boathouse development
First look at the new plans for Trafford Rowing Club new boathouse.
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.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Northwich Autumn Head today, I hope everyone enjoyed the day.
Suitable clothing for winter rowing
Most of you will have noticed the first frost
of the season last night, so this is a good opportunity to remind you that you
need to change the contents of your kit bag from what you had there in the
For the winter months please note the following bits of the club safety plan:
We would like to invite you all to join us for Bonfire Night this year on Tuesday 5th November.
We are going to the FREE event on Chorlton Green (M21 9HS) which starts at 18.30. There are food and drink options around the green on the night for those who want to partake.
Fireworks start at 19.00 for the kids and 21.00 for the big kids.
A great opportunity to see people from all areas of the club and it costs nothing!

It's getting cold
it's getting dark, it's not the weather to run in the park,
Evening rowing is no longer an option, no time after work for the water,
No light to row, means time to erg and erg and erg,
But the erg is a bore, your hands get sore, training becomes a chore.
There must be a better way to train at night, waiting for light to return.
Circuits on Thursday is the better way, the way to lighten the chore,
To work your core, for training not to be a bore, for your hands not to be sore.
Don't think it's easy until you've tried, tried and survived,
Circuits, Thursday's at 19.45
Sale Grammar Sports Hall, behind Sale Grammar
Open to club members friends and family's
Overall much more fun than an Erg!
See you there
It has become apparent in recent weeks that damage to club kit has not been flagged for repair purposes.

Runcorn Autumn Head
Yesterday, Trafford RC attended their first head race of the winter season. Runcorn Head is a 4500m course on the River Weaver, and the club entered 20 crews from the juniors, seniors and masters squad. Conditions were warm and sunny, ideal for a bit of Autumn Racing.
