Para sport is high on the sporting agenda across the UK, and Scottish Rowing wants to be at the forefront of these exciting and inspirational developments.

Para rowing has the ability to change a person's life. It can be an aid to recovery, it can help  in the management of illness and disabilities and it can give people a very important competitive outlet, and a new lease on life.
