Past graduates 

Jess Strangward joined Globe via the Learn to Row course in 2016, and progressed quickly through the development & senior squads to win a seat in the Women's 1st VIII at the Women's Head of the River Race in 2018.

"Globe’s Learn to Row course as well as being loads of fun gave you a clear insight into what becoming a rower entails. It had a great mix of land (you’ll never look at a rowing machine in the same way again!) and water outings. It was so exciting to be rowing on the Thames with historic and modern London on either side. You got to meet people in the club who supported the course who were always friendly and helpful. We finished with a mini regatta and that’s when I was hooked!"


Paul Doherty, resident Globe Laureate, provided us with this little ditty regarding his decision to learn to row!
Family growing, turned to rowing, to keep the pounds away
Technique intense, support immense,
Thames-shoreline sunrise prize.
Dawn ebb or flow, Globe members row
From boathouse, dock, or quay
Boats racked away, remains the day
Get fit, compete, row Globe!
