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

South Ayrshire DofE Boat Building initiative
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.
