‘Adaptive Rowing: A Guide’ – Available Now!

British Rowing is pleased to announce the release of ‘Adaptive Rowing: A Guide’, which contains everything you need to know about rowing for people with a disability.

[newsimage=0]The Guide is a comprehensive resource for coaches, school teachers and individuals with a disability who wish to access the sport of rowing. It is published by British Rowing and is one of the first books of its kind to cover the topic of adaptive rowing in detail – benefiting from the contributions of international experts including Simon Goodey, GB Rowing’s Specialist Consultant for Adaptive Boats and member of the FISA Commission for Adaptive Rowing.


Owing to inadequate facilities and equipment, individuals with a disability have previously been excluded from rowing. However, changes in legislation and social expectations have now addressed these issues, providing access to clubs, water and suitable equipment. Moreover a framework now exists with development pathways from grass roots right through to Paralympic competition.

This practical resource covers everything from classification, equipment and rigging and coaching considerations through to injury management and prevention and competition.

The Table of Contents provides quick access for those readers who want to dip in and out of the book. An in-line glossary is provided to promote ease of use, with a detailed Glossary of Terms at the back. The colour photographs and diagrams present additional visual information that is quick and easy to access.

Adaptive Rowing: A Guide has wide appeal; it has been written in such a way that those who are completely new to adaptive rowing or those people, who are already actively involved, will benefit.

‘Adaptive Rowing: A Guide’ is available for £29.99 inc. P&P (UK only – international buyers should contact British Rowing for more information) order your copy now at [email protected] or 020 8237 6700.
