Polperro Rowing Club
Polperro Rowing Club was formed in 1968 and is affiliated to the Cornwall Rowing Association.
Throughout the summer months we regularly compete in regattas all over Cornwall, both on rivers and out to sea, and undertake regular weekly training.
We row two different types of boats which are traditional in design and constructed of wood. The 18ft. Flashboat takes a crew of 4 rowers and a small coxswain. The 15ft Skiff can be rowed by one person with a pair of paddles, or in different combinations. Crews of two and three can also compete.
There are different age categories for rowers to compete in, from under 14 years of age to seniors (over 18 years of age). Our first regatta is usually held in May, with our local event at Polperro about mid summer, but we start training, weather permitting, in February.
We are always looking for new recruits and all ages are very welcome. It is a very rewarding sport and you don't have to have had any experience to join us, we will give you full training.
