Wow! What an amazing display of rowing and what wonderful results. Some of the medals were predicted, but for me Katherine Grainger at 40 and the Women’s Eight were the most awesome. So did it all inspire you to get on the water and have a go?

Taunton Rowing Club are ready to welcome you to have a go at this amazing sport. Everyone is welcome to come down for a taster session. This is in a stable training boat under the supervision of a qualified coach. If you like it, we offer Learn to Row Courses of six sessions, gradually moving on to racing (fine) boats.

We have learners as young as 10 and members in their seventies. Come and join us to give it a try. Call or email us so we can tell you more but our usual sessions are 4.30pm on Thursdays and 9am on Sundays.
