The idea of the Mayflower Offshore Rowing Club (MORC) was informally ‘conceived’ by founding members Tony Lovering, Paul German, John Boston and Dave Parr in April 2003. The ‘gang’ visited Brittany in 2003 and took part in some exciting regattas in both moderate and heavy seas. This was their inspiration.

The ‘Founding Fathers’ were later joined by Jeff Hammond and that is how the Mayflower Offshore Rowing Club came into fruition.

The Club has now an average of 50 members as young as 16 and as old as….well no age limit as long as you still fell like rowing.
