Rowing: The Squads

Molesey Boat Club cater's almost for every level of rowing, from a novice junior level to international and masters. The below is a short summary of each squad. For more details, please select the relevant squad from the menu above. (Click on the subtitles below for more information.)

We currently have numerous athletes based at Caversham with the objective of winning World Championship and Olympic events. These athletes work with the club based athletes to make crews for Brit Camps and HORR/WeHORR.

The senior squad is split into High Performance and Club, and covers both men and women. These squads are overseen by professional coach, Phil Bourguignon.

High Performance: This group trains full time (between 7am and 1pm, or around university schedules) and is predominantly made up of aspiring international athletes aiming for under 23, FISU or senior squad selection A number of the current squad are also on gap years following school/university. This squad is led by Phil Bouguignon

 

Club: For those athletes who have full time jobs, we have a club squad who train to a similar level as the HP group, but also have to fit their training around work. This squad has athletes from 18-30s and is open to anyone to join.

 

These squads form our top racing crews through the season, racing both nationally and internationally, at events such as HORR/WeHORR and Henley.

A very active squad catering for 14 to 18 year olds, run by our full-time coach, Helen Taylor and a large number of dedicated volunteers. The goal is to encourage members to achieve their potential, enjoy themselves and win medals at local, national and international events.

 

Please contact lead junior coach, Helen Taylor.

With over 120 men and women ranging in age from 27 to 82. The goal is to enable members to achieve their potential, whether it is to compete in regattas and heads or simply have fun with friends on the river.
