SCRA Youth Series 2019

Since 2017 a a new series of regattas for Scottish Coastal Rowing Clubs has been established.  The SCRA Youth series was aimed at encouraging junior rowers, from ages of around 15 to 18 to take up coastal rowing and meet up for friendly competition and more.  Each regatta in the series is organised by an SCRA member club, and guaranteed to have races for boys, girls and mixed crews at under 19 and under 17 age groups.  The series is divided into two circuits, North and South, although clubs could enter any of the regattas they wished.

In the past regattas Youth Series regattas have been organised at Portsoy by Deveron and PortsoyNorth Berwick, Ullapool, FOCCRs at Largs, Portobello ( by Eastern ARC) and Avoch.

We are very proud of our young rowers, and would really like to see clubs supporting them and this regatta series for another year.  Most regattas struggle to put on more than one or two junior races, just because of the need to fit races into a tight schedule.  The youth series has allowed clubs to bring much larger numbers of juniors along to events.
