The Orion Rowing Club, based at Furnival Sculling Club, Hammersmith,[1] was a regional rowing group for gay and lesbian rowers in the London area, facilitating social gatherings, and forming crews to compete in local and international regattas.[2]

The club appears to have closed in the early 21st century. According to QX Magazine it "dropped off the radar several years ago as their members began to just row for other existing clubs".[3]
