HistoryEdit

Although established in 1984 it has much older roots which features a series of mergers from eight clubs. In 1877 the Mortlake Rowing Club was founded and the following year the Anglian Boat Club was founded, these two clubs merged in 1962 to form the Mortlake Anglian Boat Club. [3]

Two clubs called the Bedford Park Rowing Club and the Barnes Bridge & District Rowing Club merged to form the Chiswick Rowing Club and they later merged with the 1962 Mortlake Anglian Boat Club becoming the Mortlake Anglian & Chiswick Boat Club. Finally in 1984 the Alpha Women's Boat Club (which was formed in 1927) merged with the Mortlake Anglian & Chiswick Boat Club to become the Mortlake Anglian & Alpha Boat Club.[3]
