Rowing

Welcome to TuksRowing



Tuks Rowing is a relatively new club having started at the beginning of 2003. This club is one of the fastest growing Sports clubs and has been very successful in a short space of time.
 
We welcome both novice students and experienced rowers. We pride ourselves on our dominance of the novice races (which complements our efforts at higher levels).

Season

The sprint season involves 2000m sprint (Olympic distance) races in all boat classes. It starts in January and ends in May with the South African Championships. The Boatrace season (in which only Universities take place) is from May to September. This is training for a single event, the universities boatrace that is a 4.2 km race for woman and a 6.2 km race for men in coxed eight boats. It takes place in Port Alfred in early September.
