Student Rowing




Please log in to join this organisation.





The only Rowing Club in town! We row Celtic Longboats and Coastal Sculling as part of the Welsh Sea Rowing Leagues and take part in events such as the Celtic Challenge and the Great River Race.




Welcome to Aberystwyth Student Sea Rowing Club!

We are a sub-section of the Aberystwyth Town Rowing Club and an Aberystwyth University affiliated club. We cater for all levels of experience, even if you have never been on a boat before! 




Our student sessions take place on a Wednesday and Saturday at varying times depending on the tide and weather. These provide you with the perfect opportunity to embrace the beauty of Aberystwyth by viewing it from out at sea or even by casually rowing up the Ystwyth and Rheidol rivers. On days when we can't get out on the water, we'll either do some land training on the ergs (check out our Instagram to see us in action) or take advantage of our surroundings and go for a hike. We also have optional training sessions in the boat shed on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for those who want to push themselves a bit.  




What we have to offer you... 

We like to develop the competitiveness of our members - whether you really want to get stuck into Varsity, fitness and other races throughout the year, or whether you just want to come down to our sessions and relieve that uni stress! As our members progress, there will have plenty of opportunities to take part in the rowing sessions provided by the town club - these sessions include men's, women's and mixed). 

As well as coming along to our sessions, we also hold some unmissable socials on a Wednesday night! This is an exciting opportunity to meet friends and enjoy a themed event or a casual get together where everybody is welcome.
