Rowing with Alfred RC
We support rowing for men and women at all levels from beginner to masters.
Our membership comprises rowers both male and female and of all ages. There is also a base of casual rowers who are organised into boats for social rows and special events.
Some of our members train in their private single sculling boats.
Rowers who are dedicated to specific season goals (such as winning medals at the SA National Championships) settle into squads who train together regularly and have priority access to allocated club equipment.
We are a relatively small club and so we tend to have one or two active settled squads with racing ambitions, however are always keen to encourage further new squads to form from any category and we allocate club equipment accordingly to assist them in their aims.

Members at all levels are encouraged to take part in numerous events and regattas around the Western Cape, the rest of the country and occasionally our rowers compete in overseas events.
