The Boats

We scull
All Camrowers' boats are for sculling (each person rows with 2 oars). This is the most symmetrical form of rowing and especially suited to older people. It also means that rowers can choose to row solo or in doubles or in a quad.

Boats to suit all abilities
The Club owns 6 Virus training boats, which are especially stable and manoeuvrable for learners. We have a coxed double, 1 coxed quadruple, both of which are stable boats and suit those who like to row in a team and those who have difficulty turning round to look where they are going. 2 mondego boats enable one rower to go out with a cox and are valuable for use in coaching and for rowers with visual disabilities.The club also has a number of "fine" boats for the expert rower - these are an uncoxed double,and 4 fine sculling boats

We renovate and repair
Storing boats outside means they deteriorate and are difficult to maintain, so we are looking forward to having indoor facilities. It will make things much easier for the volunteers who look after our boats. Several of the boats have been donated by other clubs when they have no further use for them and have been expertly refurbished by members of the Club.
