These are rowing organisations who support the aims and objectives of British Rowing, as the National Governing Body for rowing.
Coastal Rowing Associations
There are three umbrella associations based along the south coast, which are officially termed as ‘Other Rowing Organisations’. These associations are directly responsible for the competitions, governance, safety, etc. of the clubs that affiliate to them.
- West of England Amateur Rowing Association (WEARA)
- Hants and Dorset Amateur Rowing Association (HDARA)
- Coastal Amateur Rowing Association (CARA)
Those clubs that fall under any of these Associations that affiliate to both the Association and to British Rowing, fall under the governance of British Rowing. This provides those clubs with all of the benefits of being an affiliated British Rowing club.
Associated Organisations are those organisations outside the governance structure of British Rowing that support the aims and objectives of British Rowing. They are approved annually by the Council and listed in the appropriate section of the British Rowing Almanack and on the British Rowing website.
