Coastal rowing is the extreme version, the adventure side of rowing. Rowing on rough water means that coastal rowing is quite different from the flat-water Olympic style of going in a straight line. Coastal rowers often prefer rough water, which adds a whole new dimension to the sport with many coastal rowers cherishing the exhilarating aspect of rowing in extreme conditions.
We are excited about getting out on the ocean and experiencing the solitude and independence of coastal rowing. Big waves or small, our fleet is seaworthy in most weather conditions. We are bounded only by the limits of our imagination and endurance. And we love getting closer to nature. Our members have rowed with a grey whale, harbour porpoise, seals and a variety of sea birds.
Our fleet of Euro-diffusion boats are built to excel in waves and rougher water better than any flat water rowing shell. This means that Salish Sea members can row in more weather conditions, more days of the year, and with longer duration rows than any other rower. The ocean is our playground.
We participate in local and away regattas and have a custom built trailer, road ready for our weekend adventures.
