Who We Are


The Russell Boating Club is a lot of things to a lot of people and has a very interesting past . It’s origins as a boat building yard or fish factoryare legendary; as are it’s people. From Ocotber to May each year we have sail boat racing series in the evenings and at weekends. During the winter on a monthly basis we have a Winter Series. This season sees year three of the Short Ships Race and the return of the sand bar cricket match.
