Welcome to Milton Keynes Rowing Club
Milton Keynes Rowing Club (MKRC) is based at Caldecotte Lake on the south side of the city, at the Water Sports Centre on Monellan Grove (map at the bottom of this page). We share access to the lake (which gives us around a 1 kilometre straight run) and a clubhouse with the Milton Keynes Sailing and Canoe Clubs.
We have an active Summer and Winter Programme of races, events and training schedules, weekends and mid-week, as well as social functions. This covers both water training (both rowing and sculling) and land based training (circuits and rowing machines).
Membership is varied and we encourage all levels of rowing and sculling ability, from experienced rowers to complete newcomers to the sport (for whom we run Learn to Row courses). We welcome people of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners through to experienced, competitive rowers. We also welcome supporters who perhaps may wish to take their sport a little less seriously or just help with the club's activities and have now introduced a Recreational Rowing squad.
If you do intend dropping in, please check our race schedule first, to make sure we will be there!

2016 RegattaEntries for our first Open Regatta are now open on British Rowing Online Entries (BROE) and will close on Friday 2nd September at 10:00 p.m., with the draw being made on Saturday 3rd September.
Please note that there is limited trailer parking at MKRC and as such the Regatta Committee reserves the right to close entries early if the maximum number of visiting clubs/trailers is perceived to have been reached. In this situation preference will be given to clubs with fully paid entries!

World Masters GOLD for MKRC
Our first ever entry into the World Masters Regatta saw some excellent performances by the club, culminating in a magnificent World Masters GOLD from Karen and Paula in the Women's Masters E pair. Raced over four days at Hazewinkel in Belgium, this pitted our crews against those from all around the world (Karen and Paula beating crews from Australia, USA and Hungary as well as another British boat).
