Row for life

Coastal rowing combines physical exercise with that wonderful be-beside-the-seaside feeling; giving a sense of freedom as you row in open waters and a buzz when you ride the waves. A great antidote to the stresses of modern life.

Row for Life promotes and supports recreational and competitive coastal rowing.

We teach people to row; we just go-for-a-row; and we support those competing as the Coastal Barbarians.

As the UK distributor for Liteboat, if you are looking to buy a coastal rowing boat, we can help you there too.

We welcome beginners, those returning to rowing, adaptive and river rowers, those training for international championships, and even trans-Atlantic (to-be) rowers.

You are all welcome on an ad hoc or regular basis.
