Hi, do you please have a boat that Neyland could borrow for the ladies race in Aberporth on Sunday?
Urgent....Water going vessels and pilots wanted 8th June...

Hello, you may have read about a proposal from Eni UK Ltd. to carry out a seismic survey in a 900 km sq area of Cardigan Bay for oil and gas reserves. If granted license, this could June.

The proposal which covers a part-designated SAC, would affect marine life and could impact on fishing and tourism, never mind the wider issues of fossil fuel extraction and use.

We encourage everyone to email any opposition to this, to Ben Lake ([email protected]) or other local MP/AM.

XR Aberystwyth are organising an awareness-raising family event for Saturday June 8th; and in tandem with World Oceans Day.

One part will take the form of shore-side and water-based flotilla of interested parties (boat, surf, cayak, etc) in the northern part of Aber beach / sea.

To this end we are inviting sea-faring (and shoreside) folk who would like to take part. This will be a short friendly action to raise awareness and gain media attention with those taking part in solidarity opposing the seismic testing.

If you are interested, would like to get involved, take part or whatever please let us know asap by responding below! .....sandwhiches at sea on a Saturday anyone...?

Many thanks!
Congratulations to the teams from Aberystwyth who completed the gruelling Celtic Challenge yesterday morning. The Mixed Veterans, The Aberystwyth Students, and Aberystwyth Mens all winning awards at the presentation ceremony last night.

If you fancy giving rowing a go there will be some novice and junior sessions coming soon at the club so watch this space for more info.

#throwbackthrusday today goes to 2010 and the time Paul Scullion and I did the Ramsey Island race in the double yole (leftmost in the picture). This race has suffered with poor weather cancellations for the last couple of years, but is well worth attending if it runs in '19. The life/death moment spitting through the gap around the back of the island is quite exhilarating too...

[08/11/19]   It is with sadness that we have had to cancel our taster rowing sessions at the Sea2Shore Festival tomorrow, as it would be unsafe to do so due to this awful weather!

Hi all
Below is the link for an interesting survey being carried out by Paul Mansell, who is studying Sports Psychology.
He is looking into the psychological traits and mindsets of individuals who take part in any type of regular sport
The only requirement for taking part is that you do partake in a regular sporting activity.
It's pretty interesting as it gets you thinking - he needs to have 400 responses so if you do have some spare time he would greatly appreciate your support!

Thanks Please take a few minutes to take our survey.


Join us for Aberystwyth Marina Day (you can view the official page on Facebook for more details of the event)

Aberystwyth Sea Rowing Club will be involved in the day, opportunities for anyone to come along and give a go at rowing!
Experienced members of the club will be present to guide you


Afternoon all

Novice and Junior sessions will be underway again on Friday 24th of this month, at 5:30pm!

Whatever skill/experience level you are, we'd love to see lots of faces (new and old) at the session!

We are a friendly and welcoming club so please come along to enjoy this wonderful and unique sport, whether that's for leisurely purposes or if you aspire to compete!

Meet us down by the boathouse, at the side of the harbour.


If this isn't worth watching for some inspiration, then I don't know what is...

The story of the Coxless Crew, four women who rowed across the Pacific Ocean.

Details are below.

[05/03/19]   So the outcome of the Celtic Challenge meeting this evening has been that the race will be going ahead with a 12pm start on Sunday! The men will then follow at 2pm. It is a late start but it should be worth the wait as the forecast promises conditions that will lessen our suffering considerably...

With this info in mind, and if things remain as they are, we can be expected to turn up at the mouth of the harbour within a large range of time from the early hours of Monday morning to mid morning, from first boat to last.

We'll keep you updated, but remember to follow the YB tracker.

A massive thankyou to all who have worked hard over the past few months to pull this together.
