Bookings are taken on Thursdays only.
Please use one form only for all of your bookings.

Boat bookings can be emailed to the Captain using the form above each Thursday between 6am and 6:00pm. Bookings will be taken only for the week commencing on the next Monday and ending on the following Sunday, unless specified differently.
Bookings received outside the booking window will not be taken.
Bookings received will be prioritised based on first received first allocated, but will not be taken for consecutive days for the same boats, unless it is for a rower, crew or squad targeting specific regattas and races in that boat. Such requests will be given priority over requests that are not race specific.
Any consecutive day requests must include details such as:
- training times and days
- regattas and or championships being targeted for racing
This requirement is to ensure boats are available regularly during high demand periods for members who have clear racing objectives.
Bookings can only be made for the following times:
- Senior competitive and student members – Monday to Friday collect boat by 5am and return boat by 7am. Weekends collect boat by 6am and return boat by 8am.
