The Welsh Sea Rowing Association responsibilities
The WSRA is responsible for coastal rowing competitions in Wales, including the WSRA League, which has two racing disciplines: Celtic Longboats; and Yoles. The series of North and South League races are well attended and include many categories of racing that are there to encourage people of all ages and abilities to participate in our sport (Junior(U14, U16 & U18), Senior, Veterans (40+) and Super Veteran (50+)). WSRA affiliated clubs provide an excellent range of races and also maintain an impressive safety record.
The WSRA provides specific advice to clubs, parents/guardians and participants, in relation to the protection of youths and vulnerable adults - Welsh Sea Rowing Association child protection advice. You can contact the WSRA Child Protection Officer for further advice and guidance.
The WSRA also encourages Indoor Rowing and helps with a club to compare results and training tips.
This is an excellent interview of Sue Kent, who is a cox for Mumbles rowing club. Sue tells how she is turning her experience as a thalidomide baby to positive effect. It's really inspirational. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b017t048/Value_Judgements_Series_16_Episode_2/
