Welcome to Devil's Elbow Rowing Club. Please browse through the site & find out more about us, how we got our unique name, who founded us,  and most importantly what we are up to now.  

 Join us on one of our club sessions, find out about our Learn to Row courses or just give it a go! Meet new friends, build fitness and stamina, see wildlife, enjoy the scenery & be part of our amazing team.

Since the club's foundation in 2011, we have grown to 50+ active members.  All ages and abilities of experienced rowers, potential rowers and coxswains are welcome. Our members currently range from 11 years old to 64 years young. We currently run Men's, Women's and Junior Squads, and are developing quickly with the aim  of eventually taking crews to Henley, Master's Championships, National Schools. In 2013 our crews entered WeHoRR and HoRR for the first time. We  recorded a series of race wins during 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 and hope to build on that with even more great performances this year.

 Explore boat crews competing in front of our base at Trent Valley Sailing Club

Our stretch of river runs from our base at Trent Valley Sailing Club (TVSC) up stream on the River Trent 2.5km to Harrington Bridge. Experienced crew boats can also venture up the River Soar for a change on scenery. Touring can also take place down river to Beeston, up to Loughborough or even inland to Shardlow.

We run recreational rowing trips with crews participating in the Vogalonga in Venice in 2014, and Amsterdam in 2015. Other Recreational rowing events include the Great Tyne Row where our men took Pennant for fastest Crew in 2014 an 2015, and the women's crew took the Pennant for best dressed boat for their fantastic swan theme.
