Event Description

Try coastal rowing

Every Friday evening during the summer 7-9pm, (Sunday afternoons in the winter 2-4pm), North Berwick Rowing Club meets on the beach for an informal social rowing session. We meet on North Berwick West beach by the RNLI slipway, we’re hard to miss. Just come and say hello.

Anyone is welcome to come along to these sessions to try out our sport for free (aged 14 +).  In our club we don’t just race, we also just row for the fun of it, sometimes we fish, and sometimes we have barbecues… For more information visit our website.

We are taking part in the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project, which involves first building boats in the community before using them to row recreationally and in competition. The boats that we are building are to a design by Ian Oughtred called the St Ayles skiff.  Four rowers power the craft from fixed seats, with a coxswain steering and co-ordinating the crew.  Rowing these boats involves a commitment to teamwork and brings rewards from the team spirit generated, as well as health and fitness and involvement in a community effort.
