Marlene Royle and Rebecca Caroe are advocates for masters rowing.

We call attention to issues and we are the driving force of progress in the sport.
We work to identify solutions, coordinate efforts of participants, and together work to bring about changes that will make our world a better place.

By raising awareness of masters rowing around the world. We explain why masters are different from youth rowers – why we need to be treated differently and supported differently. We write, broadcast, advocate and publish in support of this goal.

We want masters to have opportunity to row together, get access to good boats, equipment and coaching, and to meet to compete and socialise with other masters rowers.

We welcome discussions with individuals, clubs and regattas about how to improve rowing for masters. Get in touch to share ideas.

Improving Rowing for Masters

Our work to advocate for masters rowing happens in 3 ways
  1. with athletes – connecting them with others, educating and inspiring
  2. with clubs – enabling them to provide a masters-suitable training environment for those who want to compete, for recreational rowers and adult beginners
  3. with federations – memberships suitable for masters, education and coach certification for masters
​Let’s spread the word together.
