River Rowing

Being coached in how to use a quad sculling boat

Welsh Rowing have kindly provided the club with the loan of a range of single, double and quad river boats. These are sliding seat boats and are either the ‘fine’ Olympic class boats or wider more stable boats preferred by many when learning to row and rowing more recreationally. River rowing employs the techniques of both ‘sweep’ rowing (one oar per rower) and ‘sculling’ (an oar in both hands).

The club welcomes experienced river rowers. For beginners or rowers who have no experience of sculling, the club is currently working with Welsh Rowing to provide a series of short 6 week ‘Learn to Row’ courses. Please contact Tom Clarke for details of course dates, by visiting this facebook page:
