Rowing: Crichton University Campus Boat Club

Meeting for training several times a week and taking part in competitions and regattas on a regular basis through the year the Boat Club is one of the most popular activities for Dumfries Campus students. We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our team so come and enjoy our three free tasting sessions ! From beginners to more advanced, everyone is welcome!

During the racing season training is on the water and becomes more intense as competitions arise and during the winter season training is mainly indoors as the river is not rowable most of the time so don’t be put off by the Scottish winter weather.

Time: Racing Season: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The times will vary during the week, however Sundays are 10am and weekdays sessions are at 6 pm sessions. Additional morning sessions will occur as and when needed
Winter Season: Monday 6pm, Tuesday 7pm, Wednesday 7pm, Thursday 6:30pm, and Sunday 10am, plus occasional morning sessions.
