Get Involved & Club Rowing Session Times

Club Rowing sessions run all the year round beginning with our traditional New Years Day row.

Times:
Saturday 10.00am
Sunday 10.00am and 2.00 pm
Wednesday 10.00am and 5.30pm (BST only)

Club sessions will last as long as there are enough people waiting and wishing to row so come and have a go!

No appointment is necessary, just dress according to the weather conditions. Life-jackets and full training is provided.

After having a go and deciding this is for you, simply join the club and pay our membership fee of:

Adults £36 per year
Juniors £18 per year

We meet at the slipway behind Scott’s. As you pass the chandlers just look out for our two skiffs which will be on trailers or in the process of launching.

You may see a large purple Troon Coastal Rowing banner or speak to any club member usually in purple club tops.

We can be contacted via this site, our Facebook page or troonrowsecy@virginmedia.com

The Duke of  Edinburgh’s Award  in South Ayrshire  Council are developing the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project in ours schools,  towns and communities by promoting this initiative in all our coastal  communities such as  Troon,  Maybole, Ayr, Prestwick and Girvan.  Sponsorship from Boyd Tunnock of Tunnocks  Biscuits and private individuals has already enabled two boat kits to be  purchased for Carrick Academy in Maybole and Marr College in Troon.  Pupils and enthusiastic members of the public  in both communities are all ready building a St Ayles Skiff in school at  Carrick Academy in Maybole and in Troon at a donated boat shed by West Coast  Marine Services in the Marina. The Troon boat is ready to be turned soon with a  celebration of this stage on Thursday 28th July.

Both boats are being built with the help and  support of young people doing their Bronze and Silver “Skills” section of the  Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and it is hoped eventually to use the rowing Skiffs  for a DofE Bronze Expedition over 2 days on our coasts or inland lochs next  year.

Vincent  Mcwhirter South Ayrshire Council DofE Schools Development Officer is working  closely with the schools to support and develop more boat building groups with  the aim of creating school teams with regular regattas in the Clyde with other  west coast boats, as well as competing with other boats around Scotland. It is  hoped also next year to possibly offer DofE expeditions to young people rowing  the Skiffs in our in land waterways and lochs or as a coastal rowing  expedition.

  1. Hello Troon, I hoped to invite you to our regatta in person at S Queensferry, but missed you. RowPorty regatta is on 28th July, on our easy to launch from sandy beach in Edinburgh. We’d love it if you could come, N Queensferry is coming, and we’ve invited lots of newly launched skiffs, as well as some of the more established clubs. We always have lots of new rowers as an urban club too.
    This is the programme for the day:
    10.30 – men open
    11.15 – women open
    12.00 – men 50+
    12.45 – women 50+
    13.30 – men 40+
    14.15 – women 40+
    15.00 – mixed 60+
    15.45 – mixed open

    On Saturday night we’re aiming to move along to the pub, and on Sunday have a social row somewhere, or picnic, or go fishing. We do a mean cake stall, and if it isn’t pouring, we’ll organise a barbeque with award winning burgers from our local butcher.

    If you could let us know if you are coming, we’d be very grateful. Get in touch via our website, or phone me on 077 080 70 228. Hope we can welcome you.
    Emma, RowPorty co-convener
