Masters Squad

Upper Thames has a diverse Masters section, from Olympic medallists to individuals who have taken up rowing in their later years.

Both male and female masters athletes are welcome at Upper Thames, with both enjoying considerable success at British and International Masters events. The Club won the Victor Ludorum at the 2018 British Masters Championships, the trophy for most successful club and also at the 2018 FISA Masters Regatta on Lake Bled.

The master’s squad also encompasses older members, many in their late 60’s and older, known as the “Silver Tops”, who wish to socialise and keep fit rather than race, with regular weekday morning outings. We therefore accommodate all ages and experience at UTRC.

The club is also host and organiser of the internationally renowned  Henley Masters Regatta

Anyone wishing to join the Upper Thames masters should contact the captain.
