Our vision is to build a new centre for rowing and canoeing in Gloucestershire to provide:
  • A home for Gloucester Rowing Club and Gloucester Canoe Club offering recreational and competitive rowing and canoeing for all ages (8-80+)
  • Development of future Olympians with the Hartpury Rowing Academy
  • A facility open to all schools, colleges and universities in Gloucestershire
  • Regional centre for Adaptive Rowing (for the disabled)
  • Training camps for clubs in the region and national-level crews
  • Regattas drawing entries from across the country
  • Fun regattas open to all
Potential to support other uses of Hempsted Meadows and the surrounding area
  • Facilities to support camping and caravanning
  • Main launch point for Fire & Rescue services at the north end of the Gloucester-Sharpness canal

With the help of Sport England, Gloucestershire Environmental Trust, British Rowing, the Summerfield Trust, the organisations who will be the main users and many others, over 80% of the £1.75 million cost of the boathouse has been raised. Our aim is to raise the remainder by early 2015 so that we can complete the building during the summer of 2015. Please help us meet that goal.


Gloucester Boathouse Ltd can only make the project a reality if local businesses and people help us raise the £1.75m needed to build a state of the art boat house in Gloucestershire.

Cheques made payable to Gloucester Boathouse Ltd can be sent to The Boat House Appeal, Gloucester Boathouse Ltd, The Boat House, 326 Bristol Road, Gloucester GL2 5DH.
