Skerries Rowing Club is a young and vibrant coastal rowing club, founded in 2012. Today the club consists of over 100 members, from age 11 to over 70, from all sorts of backgrounds with all sorts of abilities and aspirations, from recreational rowing to seriously competitive rowing.
We row in clinker-built traditional wooden east-coast skiffs with fixed seats and wooden oars. There are 4 oarspeople- each with a sweep oar, and a coxswain. SRC is a member of the East Coast Rowing Council and compete in ECRC regattas most summer weekends against our fellow east coast clubs. We also compete in longer more challenging races all over the country and abroad.
When do we train?
Our crews train Monday to Friday from March to October, from 5pm to 9pm (weather dependant!), also weekends for longer training sessions when not racing. It entirely depends on the athlete and what they want to achieve from the sport. Some members like to train hard almost every day and others prefer to train a couple of times a week and take in the fabulous Skerries views from the water.
We pride ourselves on our inclusivity and are open to all.
It’s not all about the rowing either though! Many the summer’s evening is spent down by the slip, having a bit of craic and enjoying the social side of the club.
So maybe we’ll see you down there??
