Putney Town recognises the vital role that coxes play in the sport of rowing. All of our squads depend on coxes for both training and racing, particularly during the winter season. As such, there is no charge for membership.
Our squad captains would love to hear from any coxes who would like to join Putney Town, whether you wish to occasionally join in or train full-time with our squads. Experience in London or on the Tideway is not necessary. Click here to email them!
Coxing is a vital part of rowing – every eight or coxed four requires a pair of eyes, ears and a voice of authority to make sure it is safe and working together to go as fast as possible! Like rowing, it takes skill and time to master. Just as the club has introduced many people to rowing, we have introduced many people to coxing too.
We have developed a framework to ensure that your development as a cox is structured and you continue to learn and improve. We have experienced coxes and coaches at the club, as well as experienced rowers who are always willing to help you get the most from your crews.
If you think you might like to give it a go, please email one of the captains who will invite you to the club to meet one of our experienced coxes where you can ask questions and get ready to take the rudder!
