Fours Head
12th November 2017

The first major test of the head racing season arrived with the annual Fours Head of the River. The cold and windy weather made for tough conditions, but the 5 AK entries battled the 6.8km course bravely. The men’s squad had 2 coxed fours, and a coxless four and all finished well inside the pack. The women’s squad continued in sculling boats, as they have for much of the season, and their two quads came 9th and 13th respectively in the 18 strong field and closer to their main rivals than at the start of the campaign.

New Season – Calling Experienced Rowers
3rd September 2017

With the dust barely settled on a successful 2016/17 season, Auriol Kensington Rowing Club is already putting plans in motion for the new campaign. The club has big ambitions to make the 2017/18 season its most successful yet and have put a new coaching structure in place to reflect this. Newly appointed Head of Rowing, Jamie Smith, will be supported by an enthusiastic team of coaches, driven to make AK the premier club for fostering rowing talent on the Tideway while competing for honours at the highest level.

The club will hold an Open Day to mark the season kick-off on Sunday 3rd September. Experienced rowers are welcome to join established squad members for sessions on the water, followed by a barbecue on our famous riverside balcony.
