North Berwick Rowing Club was established in 2009, with the aim of bringing traditional coastal rowing to the town of North Berwick, on the Firth of Forth.
We are taking part in the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project, which involves first building boats in the community before using them to row recreationally and in competition. The boats that we are building are to a design by Ian Oughtred called the St Ayles skiff. Four rowers power the craft from fixed seats, with a coxswain steering and co-ordinating the crew. Rowing these boats involves a commitment to teamwork and brings rewards from the team spirit generated, as well as health and fitness and involvement in a community effort.
Competitions will be held within the community and club members, male and female, will also represent the Royal Burgh of North Berwick in competition against other Scottish coastal communities.

Just when you think that the regatta season is over and you can take a brief respite from the gruelling training regime to which you have subjected yourself, another one appears on the calendar (and indeed in Callander). So it was that the Scottish Coastal Rowing community loaded their boats on the trailers once more time and headed for the shores of Loch Venachar for the SCRA freshwater sprints.
