Rowing gives my son access to water sports in Largs which is affordable, safe and supportive. Very often water sports are seen as an expensive and unattainable activity for families as it requires expensive equipment and lessons. Skiff rowing allowed my son to feel included and connected in his community when we first moved here 5 yrs ago. He gained confidence in his social skills and had the opportunity to engage with young people and adults from a range of back grounds and abilities. It has hugely benefited his wellbeing both physically and emotionally throughout his adolescent years. As a single parent I am very grateful for the opportunity the club has afforded him.
