Brighton Rowing Club

It is with a heavy heart that we must admit to the world that Brighton Rowing Club no longer exists as a fully functional rowing club… Brighton Cruising Club as it began in 1892 and was situated under the famous arches on Brighton seafront where it remained until 1994, supporting rowers, sailors and fishermen as an inclusive and well supported club. Increasing rent and sky high maintenance costs caused the club to lose it’s premises and temporarily, at least to start with, cohabit with Shoreham Rowing Club. However, with no new clubhouse forthcoming,┬áBrighton Rowing Club remains in limbo…
The Brighton and Hove Rowing Boat Club was formed after the closure of the Brighton Cruising Club and its rowing section, however it also is currently not rowing.
