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 main user organisations and many others, over £1.4 million has been raised. We expect to let contracts in October '15 for the boathouse shell and to fit out the boat storage areas and some toilet/shower areas. We still need to raise another £250,000 to fully fit out the new building. Please help us meet that goal.
