Taunton Rowing Club was founded in 2012.
The club was founded by Ian Payne almost 10 years ago starting with only a few borrowed boats and a trailer at the Old Market Site. Before he moved away, he was the main driving force to expand the club and move to our current location.
Located at COACH in French Wier, we row on the River Tone. Boating down from French Weir, we row on the 700m stretch from Tangier down to Firepool Lock.
The club has a wide range of boats suited to all levels from complete beginners to national and international competitors. These include: singles, doubles, a pair, an adaptive double, a coxed and an uncoxed quad and two coxed fours.
Despite the limitations of the river, it is a great place to learn to row and train.
