Rowing in Port Macquarie struggles to maintain membership numbers due to the following factors: It's basically an early morning sport and limited in social activity; it is geared towards a competitive pathway and minimal recreational activities; the rowing precinct is generally unsuited to rowing in the afternoons due to wind and rough water.
The objective is to aquire Coastal Rower craft that are designed for rough water and even surf rowing. These boats would allow first time rowers to learn in a perfectly balanced boat; it would allow rowing at any time of the day; it would add a recreational element to the sport; it would add diversity to the club with a couple of options; and it would still provide a pathway to competition.
