The core of any club and Lindisfarne has both Women’s and Men’s Masters Squads who participate in a manner to maintain general fitness or to rekindle past achievements in the competitive environment. Masters begins at age 27 and as coaching availability is limited previous rowing experience is essential.
Racing is provided for at pennant regattas as well as specific Masters Events on both the local and national stage. Those who are really keen will also seek out the World Masters Rowing Events.
The squad has proven very successful over a long period and acquits itself well when attending regattas.
The men’s squad are affectionately known as the ergo boys for their perceived affliction to on water rowing as it clashes with their coffee time!!!
