. . . the wilder cousin of fine rowing
Malta’s waters offer some of the best locations to practice “Coastal Rowing”, a heavier version of rowing practised in the non-so flat water as is typical in open sea or in sandy beach bays.
This form of rowing is meant to introduce in the Los Angeles Olympic Calendar and is practised in varieties: “beach sprint races” and “endurance races”.
The Club currently makes use of singles (C1x) and similar boats which are used in such competitions and it is the intention of the Club to develop coastal rowing further through the purchase of more boats and participation in training camps and competitions both locally and overseas. Our Club has teamed up with some of the best neighbouring rowing clubs who are as eager as we are to see our local rowers row on coastal boats. If you want to have a go, we are here to help you take it further.
Obviously, before starting on-water rowing, athletes are asked to become familiar with rowing through on-land training which we offer. The transition from on-land to on-water, with the magic this brings with it, is normally something natural. Our experience has shown that once you start, it’s unlikely that you will turn back.
Our Club’s training sessions are held every Wednesday and Friday at 1500hrs, 1545hrs and 1630hrs, at SportMalta’s Ta’ Kandja facilities.
