What is Rowing?

A water sport that uses all major muscle groups to propel a boat forward. Rowing boats are the fastest muscle powered craft on the water, and are not to be confused with canoes which only utilize the upper body to move the boat.

Rowers use long oars to lever the boat using most of the power provided by the leg drive, this is why we face “backwards” when we row!
