Rowing is the act of propelling a boat through the water with the use of oars. There are two different types of rowing, sweep and sculling. In sweep rowing each rower holds one oar with both hands, and is in a boat with 2, 4 or 8 other rowers. In sculling, each rower has two oars, one in each hand, and may row in a single, double or quad.

I AM iNTERESTED IN ROWING, HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE
Check out our Website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. These will give you a flavour of what we are about. If you want to find out more call down to the club on a Saturday or Sunday mornings around 11am. We are normally there from Mid September to 1st week in July and look for one of the coaches or the Captain.
What age do you have to be to start rowing
The youngest people start is when they are 12 or 13 years of age. However you can start at any age after that.
Do you have to be able to swim to row
Our boats have built in buoyancy, that means you can never sink even if the boat topples. However all our athletes should be able to swim. We run competency tests in a local swimming pool when ever the numbers allow.
