There is a long tradition of club At Home regattas and local meets that never appear on our Fixtures List. These very enjoyable events provide a fun day for all rowers including those who may not be willing or able to race competitively.
> Rowing Ireland is encouraging clubs to grow their numbers through providing non-competitive rowing programs, sometimes called social or recreational rowing. A part of this expansion includes finding ways for these rowers to explore their interest in the sport through promoting appropriate events such as short (250/450m) races in touring quads.
> If you feel you have an event that would be open to inviting such rowers to be a part of our rowing family we would love to hear from you and publicise your event. Remember, none of this goes through Tracker or requires registration.
>At these regattas, where the short races are exciting and close, the social aspect is well catered for as people have the opportunity to mix and enjoy each other’s company.
> If this is of interest please get in touch with us through firstname.lastname@example.org
