Scottish Rowing is the governing body for rowing in Scotland and is a company limited by guarantee.
Its operation is governed by the Companies Act of 2006 and by its Memorandum and Articles of Association and its Operating Practices Document. It is responsible for the development of rowing in Scotland, both indoor and on the water.
There are 27 affiliated clubs with an estimated total membership of around 2,500.
Scottish Rowing represents rowing’s interests with British Rowing, sportscotland, government and non-governmental organisations. As the governing body, Scottish Rowing also:
- Provides racing licences to allow participants to compete in events
