Barry Yacht Club Sea Rowing

Barry Yacht Club Sea Rowing Section aims to provide a fun and social way to enjoy the coast line. Not just the Barry and Vale of Glamorgan coast line but the rest of the Welsh Coast too. We do this through providing the equipment and guidance needed for our members to enjoy the sport of Celtic Long Boat rowing safely. Join us! It’s very rewarding rowing in some of the most beautiful locations in the UK. We are not a racing club although we do go racing and compete as hard as we can.

Welsh Sea Rowing Association

We are members of the Welsh Sea Rowing Association and we take part in the Welsh racing league. BYC rowers also take part in numerous other challenge events. Most of our time on the water, however, is spend enjoying the sport, the location and a great social atmosphere.

Sea rowing takes place in 24ft open fibreglass boats. With 4 rowers and a cox, the boats are designed for the various sea conditions experienced around the Welsh coast. Sea rowing is the fastest growing Welsh sport with over 120 boats rowing for pleasure and league racing on a regular basis.
