If you want to pull for victory, it would be a better idea to do so as part of a crew with other like minded (and probably determined) rowers in a St Ayles Skiff, rather than struggling on your own in a wee “flattie” in a big swell. Our recent survey found that more than half of the members of SCRA member clubs are female. In 2015 SCRA clubs had around 2400 members, with a further 2400 non members having a go at rowing during the year, perhaps through open days or community competitions. If you are not rowing in a St Ayles skiff already find your local club on our Clubfinder or through our international “links” page. If you don’t find a club near you, build a boat. Yes you can.
