Trelawney Rowing Club are a rowing Club based at Stithians Lake and they row flash and skiff boats which are traditionally built, fixed seat rowing boats and are ideally suited for adults and juniors alike. The Club participate in Regattas around the County throughout the summer and at present currently hold the County U18's Points Championship.

They have recently launched a new 15ft skiff named Bridget and an 18ft flash boat named Kingfisher after receiving a £10,000 grant from Sport England Lottery Funding. The new boats will be a great asset to the Club enabling more rowers to be on the water at any one time. The boats were blessed by Father Bone and named by the President's wife, Mrs Bridget Williams followed by a reception at the clubhouse.

They have thanked Solo Building Supplies based in Penzance for their sponsorship and also Mrs Benney for her donation towards the club sign.

New adult and junior members are welcomed.Training is held on Tuesday and Friday, dependent on weather, between 6 and 8pm at Stithians Lake. Contact Sally Bray on 07870972589 if you are interested.
