Gateshead CRC is based at Derwenthaugh Marina where the River Derwent meets the River Tyne near the Metro Centre and just downstream from the Scotswood Bridge.
We offer competitive and recreational rowing and have a wide range of boats from light racing shells to stable training boats and fixed seat coastal skiffs.
Gateshead CRC has rowers from age 11 upwards and of all abilities. We are an inclusive club and have adapted boats and equipment for rowers with disabilities and impairments.
As well as rowing we build our fixed seat boats and run boat building and rowing sessions for community groups.
Gateshead CRC Clubhouse and Boathouse In 2017 we were lucky to be awarded funding from Sport England for a fantastic new 25metre x 8metre Boathouse which also stores our rowing machines and has our gym area.
We also have a new clubhouse, funded by the Suez Communities Trust, which has male and female disabled WCs, showers, a club room which we use for functions and a kitchen.
