Porthmadog Rowing is a section of Madog Yacht Club based on the harbour in Porthmadog. We row in Celtic, fixed seat boats with crews consisting of four rowers and a cox. We are affiliated to the Welsh Sea Rowing Association.
We have four boats – Fleetwing, Madog, Glaslyn and Ysbryd Eryri (more commonly referred to as 69).
We compete in WSRA League races across Wales - Northern, Joint and Southern. There are also non-league races in which we take part including the bi-annual marathon, the Celtic Challenge – rowing about 90miles from Arklow, Ireland to Aberystwyth; the 22 mile Great River Race in London, and the 17 mile Ocean to City race in Cork
We hold two open days for friends and family - ‘Sweaty Fish’ (in the Summer) and ‘Frosty Fish’ (usually Boxing Day) events where experienced rowers and complete novices race in mixed boats. If you fancy jumping straight in with a crash course in Celtic racing, you can come for a social row unless you are a bit more competitive; please come along and have a go!
We hold a coaching evening every Tuesday which is open to new rowers.
We are a very sociable club with fun nights, use of a barbeque area and a great calender of events both on and off the water.
