From the beginning the Islington Boat Club has been devoted to giving Islington youth access to nature and water sports in the City Road Basin and beyond. We encourage all Islington youth to come join our club where you can make new friends, learn new skills and enjoy the outdoor activities that the boat club has been providing for more than 45 years.
