Join us for some fun rowing on the Thames

Rowing in skiffs is a sociable and low cost sport, suited to all ages and abilities and a great way to learn how to row. Skiffs are hand-crafted traditional wooden rowing boats, they come in two types – singles and doubles which are steered by a cox.  As well as social skiffing and longer distance trips we also race. Skiff racing is offered at all categories from beginners – novices through to senior, in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Regattas have side by side sprint skiff racing on a course of approx 600m, and there are also long distance events which are raced as timed events. The annual Skiff Championships are held on the Henley Course which sees the Championship events being raced as well as other categories. The season then finishes with the award of the Ormiston trophy which goes to the club with the highest skiff wins of the year. Visit and join us for some fun skiffing in thames.

Please look at the club activities for more details of skiffing at Dittons.
