Cygnet Rowing Club is a rowing club founded in 1890 on the River Thames in England.

The club is based at the Civil Service Sports Club Boathouse at Duke's Meadows in Chiswick, London.[1]

The club was originally founded for non-manual male workers in the General Post Office and rowed at Putney. It later moved to Hammersmith and then to the CSSC Boathouse in the 1930s. After World War II it was decided to merge the several Civil Service rowing clubs that then existed into Cygnet, the one which had the largest membership.[2]

The club has competed at Henley Royal Regatta.[3]
