We are a club built around a love of rowing. We pride ourselves for our camaraderie, engagement and support for our rowers across all age groups and our wider community involvement. We’re very involved in our neighbourhood, with beach and river clean-ups, working alongside our local waka ama group and supporting various local groups. Our happy group of schools, club rowers and masters have strong ties to each other and to New Zealand’s larger rowing community.

We are one of the oldest rowing clubs in New Zealand, based in Panmure, on the Tāmaki River.



Our friendly Masters group is the largest in NZ. This group formed in 1995 and now competes at all regattas from 1000m to long distance, national and regional.

Club rowing 2023

A new Club-aged crew (older than school rowers, younger than Masters) has been formed to contest the 2023/24 season, with coaching by John Cook and much enthusiasm from the rowers.

Glendowie College

Glendowie College has been a rowing school since 1966/67, and joined St George’s in the 1991/92 season. GDC is a public secondary school located in east Auckland. 

MacLeans College

Rowing since 2002, MacLean’s started with a squad of 10 girls and coach Keith Hibberd, and has gained in standing quickly amongst the New Zealand rowing community.

MASTERS Learn to row

I stumbled upon St Georges Rowing Club purely on a suggestion from a friend to try rowing. That was three years ago and now I can't image life without it. I've met, awesome new friends, improved my fitness and learnt an incredible new skill. It is without doubt the most challenging yet rewarding thing I have ever done. I cannot recommend it enough.
