Clwb Rhwyfo Aberystwyth Rowing Club

Welcome to Aberystwyth Rowing Club.


We are a sea rowing club based on the Mid-Wales coast in the seaside town of Aberystwyth. The majority of club rowing takes place in fixed seat rowing boats with 4 rowers and a cox per vessel. We also have some more modern-styled sliding seat boats, which we encourage members to progress to over time. The club compete in events of the Welsh Sea Rowing Association’s Northern and Southern leagues all around the Welsh Coast ranging from Bull Bay in the North to Pembroke Dock in the South. We also compete in non leagues events a little further afield including the Thames Great River Race, Cork Ocean to City Race (Eire) and the biannual Celtic Challenge race from Arklow to Aberystwyth. The club are also heavily involved in the organisation of the latter, and hope to field several teams to the next edition in 2016.

We offer opportunities to row in a number of different catgeories throughout various league events. The club strives to produce strong boats at every league race, entering into Mens, Ladies, Junior/Novice and Mixed categories wherever we go. We also regularly attend the National Indoor Rowing Championships which are held in both Wales and England.
