What is Rowing?

Rowing is a water sport that can be enjoyed recreationally or competitively. The sport involves pushing against the water with an oar to generate a force that moves the boat, commonly known as a scull.

 How do I get involved in Rowing?

Anyone with a Visual Impairment can get involved in rowing. A blind of partially sighted individual can benefit from rowing through the sense of freedom it provides, reduced social isolation, and learning new skills whilst keeping fit and healthy. You can do all this on the water or indoors, just for fun or to compete in races.
