How To Get Involved

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in coastal rowing, including building, maintaining and rowing coastal rowing boats, or chatting about them, or simply being around people who do the same!!

We don’t have a club building, yet. We are grateful to have use of the shed at the rear of the Harbour Masters Office on Harbour Row. Having launched our first skiff Breagha on 29th May 2021, we welcome everyone to row, maintain and chat with us. When the skiff is out come to find us. Otherwise keep an eye on the Events information on our website or check out our Facebook page to see what’s going on. We are a busy club, with beach cleans and maintenance so please get involved.

How to Join In Rowing

Launch times are weather and tide dependent. Check our facebook page (Wigtown Bay Coastal Rowing Club) and this website calendar for launch details.

Anyone can come along to the Isle of Whithorn and try out coastal rowing. We ask that you complete a temporary membership form before or at your first visit.

Open sessions are for anyone to come along and row for fun. Club members will organise the open session, cox and row the skiff for fun in and around the Isle of Whithorn Bay. We will be looking out for wildlife, having a laugh, and practising good safe technique. There will always be someone coordinating on shore.

Training or team sessions are routinely booked in advance; come along and watch the launch and retrieval. Sessions can be booked by members. Anyone wanting to arrange a training session, catch up first with one of the trustees to get to know how to access and store equipment, and to allocate a ‘designated worrier’. Email for more info.

How to Join In Boatbuilding
