About the Club

The London Otters Rowing Club is the UK's LGBTQI+ inclusive rowing club. Our mission is to increase the profile of both competitive and recreational LGBTQI+ rowing within the sporting community.

Races and Events

We enter a number of British Rowing events throughout the year. Events we've been involved with for the 2016/2017 season have included:

  • Quintin Head
  • Greenwich Head
  • Hammersmith Head
  • Lea Spring Regatta
  • Bedford Regatta
  • Peterborough Spring Regatta

Equipment

As a fledgling club we've come a long way from our roots in 2014 when we owned no equipment whatsoever. Over the past few years we've managed to acquire equipment for our members to use for training and racing, including:

  • Sir Christian Bonnington, our first boat, an eight.
  • David, a four.
  • Rear Gunner Dai Morgan, a convertible four/quad.
  • Angus McNibbon, a quad.
  • Bridgnorth Star, a pair.
  • An unnamed eight.

We also own our own trailer, "Trailer Swift", which is available for hire. Contact us for more details.

As well as our own equipment, our base at the Royal Docks Adventure provides facilities such as an indoor rowing tank.
