I am an experienced rower
If you have rowed at another club, or wish to take up rowing again after a break, and would like to find out what the best squad is for you, first review the information on the Adult, Recreational or Junior squad pages. When you are ready to join please go to our Join Lea R.C. page to enquire about joining.
I am new to rowing
If you are an adult beginner to rowing please review our Learn to Row page before signing up to our Learn to Row mailing list.
Ready to apply for membership?
Once you have enquired about joining Lea R.C., and had your eligibility for one or our squads confirmed, you will need to complete a membership form and pay your membership fee for the current season.
Our rowing year runs from 1 October to 30 September. We do not charge a joining fee. The fees applicable to the current season can be downloaded from Membership Form & Fees on our Resources page
Racking fees and insurance
Racking is available to those who are either ‘full racing’ or ‘sculling’ members of the club. The annual racking fee is payable per seat (1x = 1x annual fee, 2x = 2x annual fee, and so on; the cox seat is not included). It is a requirement that boat owners take out private insurance for their boats which covers their boat both on and off the water. The club will need a photocopy or scan of the insurance cover. Any boats without a valid insurance document will be subject to an additional racking fee of £50 per seat, to cover the cost of placing the boat on the club’s insurance.
Race entry fees
Race entry fees are the cost of entry to events. Race fees need to be paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer one day before the event at the latest.
