Mens Eight at Gloucester Head Race 1999
In Summer, you will find crews training on almost any evening of the week, and until into the afternoon at some weekends. In Winter, circuit training and ergos replace the weekday evening rowing sessions.

Training at the weekends usually takes place from 9am on Saturday and Sunday all year round - unless we're away racing!

Avon County has a very friendly mens squad, mainly in the Novice to Senior 3 status, although all standards are welcome. Beginners are also welcome and many of the current squad learnt to row at Avon. There are also quite a few veteran men (including a large veteran novice squad) at the club.

Many club members have chosen to join Avon because they wanted to learn to scull. We have a very nice piece of water for sculling, and several sculls suitable for beginners. The club owns several racing singles, pairs/doubles, fours, quads and an eight for men's use.

The majority of men at Avon County race competitively and have had recent wins in virtually every boat type and status (see the results). Most racing is at local events but the club also travels to London for the Tideway head races and around the country for other events, such as The National Chapmionships and Henley Royal Regatta.
