RowAround SCOTLAND 2020

RowAround SCOTLAND 2020


RowAround Scotland 2020 is a relay in open rowing boats around the coast of Scotland. It is organised by Scottish Coastal Rowing Association whose 70 member clubs will all take part, joining up their communities and promoting Scotland’s wonderful coastline and waters along the way.

The St Ayles Skiff is a class of four oared rowing boat where each boat is actually built by the communities that use them. They have enabled thousands of people to take up the sport of coastal rowing, and see their communities from a new angle. There will be plenty of opportunities for people to take part in this adventure, and in the events that will take place in each section. You will be able to keep track on progress through this website, and see where you can support the event as it makes its way around the coast on some of the most spectacular waters in the world.

We are delighted to be supporting RowAround Scotland as part of Year of Coasts and Waters 2020. With its hugely varied coastline and inland waters, Scotland will provide the perfect stage for this unique baton relay, shining a light on the sport of coastal rowing.”
