Re-positioning of Chiswick Bridge Rowing Crossing

Re-positioning of Chiswick Bridge Rowing Crossing Point

The crossing point for rowing boats in the vicinity of Chiswick Bridge, will be repositioned as part of the PLA & TRRC's ongoing work to improve the safety and ease of navigation for rowers in the area covered by the code of practice for rowing as promulgated by NTM U15 of 2006. The re-positioning will occur on or about the 30th of July 2014.

Currently the crossing zone's upstream edge is approximately 25m upstream of the Ship Inn. This edge will be moved downstream to be in line with the leaning metal pile (with the yellow stripe on it) in front of the Stag Brewery. This re-positioning will be marked by the moving of the Ship Inn buoy from its current position to parallel with the leaning metal pile. The Bull's Alley buoy will not be moved from its current position.

The re-positioning of the crossing point is for two main reasons. Firstly, to increase the amount of room for crews wishing to spin between the restricted zone under Chiswick Bridge and the start of the crossing zone. Secondly, to ensure crossing crews have finished crossing before reaching the spit of land around the outfall at the Ship Inn.

The club has been helped and supported by Chiswick Pier Trust, Sport England, the BCU, Active Ealing, Hounslow CIP and the London Marathon Trust. We work with Kayakojacko - a local company committed to coaching excellence in many types of canoeing and this has helped us to expand our programme.

New members of any age (8 +) or ability are always welcome. Assistance is provided to take people as far as they want to go in different parts of the sport. We are committed to developing all aspects of canoeing and helping people to make more use of the Thames. Look under Cool Stuff to find photos of recent club activities and more.

River sessions run from Chiswick Pier on Sunday mornings. These usually involve a trip towards either to Fulham or Kew - depending on the tide. All abilities are welcome. More details including what to bring, what time we meet and other useful info can be found under the ‘Sessions’ link at the top of this page.

You could also join us on a Thursday Evening pool session 21:00 - 22:15 every week at Gurnell Leisure Centre, where you can meet some of our coaches and members and try a boat. We teach rescues, rolling and basic skills at the pool.

You may also like to join a beginners or an improvers course. See club programme for dates of the next courses.

Above left is the link for Active Ealing. It is the department in Ealing Council which encourages and provides opportunities for sport and physical activities. They run one of London's best sport development programmes - 9 sports centres and an athletics track. They help clubs like ours to get started and develop. You can find out more about Active Ealing from their website. The link above right is for Awards For All. They provided us with some grant money to help our club grow to what it is now. The London Trust (centre) gave us a £7,000 grant to buy boats and to fit a pontoon to the pier, which enables us to launch safely in any tidal conditions. Hounslow council also helped our club to get started in 1998 by giving us some kayaks.
