St Neots Rowing Club (SNRC) is a British Rowing affiliated club in the town of St Neots, Cambridgeshire. It was founded in 1865.


Training for competitive rowing on the River Ouse at St Neots goes back as far as 1865 where there is extensive club participation in regattas held at St Neots in the years 1874 to 1882 from copies of regatta programmes for these years. The first full open regatta at St Neots was held on August Bank Holiday in 1874.


SNRC has a large boathouse (rebuilt after severe gales in 1976 which completely demolished the boathouse and destroyed the club's fleet of boats) The Club rows on a 4km stretch of the River Great Ouse and races in eights, fours, quads, doubles, pairs and single sculls with a fleet of excellent[citation needed] racing shells and several training boats.
