WEARA represents the interest of rowers throughout the South Western counties with an affiliated membership with 15 clubs. We hope to be able to provide a forum to introduce the sport of rowing in the South West.

Rowing is often described as the ultimate team sport and a world-class performance has been described to be as difficult as

‘Getting eight guys to run a four minute mile, in step’


Rowing is fundamentally based on a group of people who simply enjoy messing about in boats, whatever the level – competitive or recreational. It is a sport that exercises more muscles than any other, and constantly supports the body weight, placing less strain on joints and making it a sport suitable for any age group, people start rowing at school, university or with a club at any level of fitness and at any age. If you are looking to start rowing, get in touch with your local club

Enjoy your rowing in the West Country.
