Welsh Coastal Rowing Championships held at Aberdyfi
A.R.C hosts the Welsh Coastal Sculling Championships on June 15th


What a fab day for A.R.C. !!

A great day of rowing on the Dyfi estuary on Saturday , June 15th when Aberdyfi was host to the Welsh Coastal Rowing Championships.

Aberdyfi Sculling captain and Race Director for the day, Dai Rice, said, We were thrilled to be chosen to host the 2024 Welsh Coastal Sculling Championships - an event open to rowers from all over the U.K.

This is a major event for our club and it was great to see so many rowers from other clubs come to Aberdyfi to take part and discover the wonderful venue we have here.

Despite the pessimistic weather forecast, the day didn't disappoint in the end, and we were able to go ahead with our planned scheduled races.

We had races in three different classes of boats - singles, doubles and quads - with an Under 19 category, an Open( 20-40years) and Masters category of 40+,50+ and 60+

Conditions on the water were very varied- from being fairly calm in the morning, to the wind picking up and the tide changing later on -making conditions pretty rough and challenging for everyone - but that can be what rowing is all about!

It's been a fantastic day and we have had some terrific feedback from other clubs about the whole day.

Thank you to everyone who came to take part and many thanks to all our amazing volunteers and everyone who helped to make the day so enjoyable and successful.  A huge thanks must go to the Dovey Yacht Club for providing the perfect venue and also the safety boats.

A.R.C. put in some really good peformances after, for some, a short introduction to sculling.  We were thrilled that Aberdyfi's Tim Chesworth and Cath Havard took first place in the Mixed Open category ( 20-40 years)

It was a really great day - thank you everyone - Aberdyfi is now well and truly on the coastal sculling map!
