Explore Rowing

Explore Rowing

British Rowing launched ‘Explore Rowing’ in May 2010, aiming to have 10,000 more people rowing once a week by 2013.

Explore Rowing clubs are making new links with their local communities, rowers are finding fun and more flexible ways to enjoy rowing.  Find out how your club can join the initiative.

It isn’t just about welcoming new rowers, it’s about providing our existing rowers with a whole range of activities so that they can keep rowing our rivers, lakes, shores, canals and even try their hand at the more extreme surf rowing and ocean crossings.

Rowing is for all ages and ability – explore the possibilities at www.explorerowing.org.


Accreditation will provide your club with access to a range of benefits including promotional and marketing support, the Explore Rowing Learn to Row Scheme and Explore Assistant.  Accreditation is really simple and there is no charge for it.

For more information please contact Sophie on sophie.slaney@britishrowing.org.
