About the Club
Poplar, Blackwall and District Rowing Club (PBDRC) was formed in 1845 and is believed to be the third oldest rowing club in Great Britain.
The Club has a successful record in regattas, and in recent years has produced international oarsmen such as John Roberts (“rowing’s Paul Gascoigne of his era – silky skills in the boat, minimal training, interspersed with plenty of beers,” according to Martin Cross in ‘Olympic Obsession’ – some things never change!) and Colin Seymour, Olympic scullers Mark Hunter and Kenny Dwan and current international and GB scullers and oarsmen.
