The 2013 British Rowing National Tour (organised by Weyfarers)
This year's National Tour will be in Scotland, from 29th August - 1st September. Details will appear here shortly.
The FISA (International Rowing Federation) tour is held each year in a different country, with the aim of promoting touring rowing in countries where this form of the sport is in its infancy. The tour is organised by a host club or clubs, who supply the boats, accommodation and meals, though participants have to make their own travel arrangements. The cost is normally around £1,000 for the week. There are normally between 60 and 80 participants, with quotas for each country. Anyone can apply, but applications have to be signed by their Club Captain as evidence that they are competent rowers, and by British Rowing to confirm that they are members.
Further information can be found on the FISA Website
The 2013 tour will be in Ireland. Entries are now closed .
40 tours, mostly 1 or 2 days, are advertised on the Aviron France website. It is normally possible to hire a seat in a boat.
