If you're already rowing, the Explore Rowing website can help expand your horizons in the sport.
Something for everyone
Use the website to share your experiences with other rowers throughout the country. With groups for all sorts of rowing around the country you can find out more and talk to fellow rowers to get involved. You could try surf rowing, masters rowing, gig rowing, touring rowing...the options are endless.
Expand your horizons
Have you even been past the lock at the end of your stretch or explored a different waterway? Our routes can give you ideas of where to go and how to do it. From iconic routes steeped in rowing history like the River Tyne or Henley Stretch to more extreme routes such as the out to the Needles, our routes will help inspire you to explore the waterways.
Once you’ve tried a route come back and add photos and your comments or add up a route on a stretch of water you’re familiar with. Stuck for a boat - don't worry, if you're a member of a club in the Boat Hire Network you can find one on here too.
Find a Challenge
Want something a bit more competitive than a route then why not take on one of our personal challenges? Our challenges are split into time, distance and goal challenges and you can compare your results to other challengers. Our challenges are graded by difficulty to help you find one to suit you and come with instructions on how to complete the challenge. Don’t forget to come back and let others know what you thought of the route and to add your photos/videos.
Can’t find a challenge to suit you - why not create your own challenge for a group of friends or club mates?
Connect and Share
Tell others about your rowing experiences and let them know how to try it too by posting blogs. These can be linked to your club to give them some extra promotion and could end up featured on the front page. Even if it’s just a few words and photos it might just help inspire someone else to get involved.
