We are Greater Rennes Metropolitan Area's main rowing club, affiliated to the French Rowing Federation (https://ffaviron.fr/structures/35006/societe-regates-rennaises).
And, good news, there are several coaches or board members who speak English (and many languages other than French), so do feel welcome, even if you're not fluent in French, we will find a way to communicate ! By the way, our club is sister club (or twin club) with the EXETER ROWING CLUB (GBR), RUDER VEREIN ERLANGEN (GER), LODNY SPORTY BRNO (CZE) and POLSKI ZWIAZEK TOWARZYSTWO WIOSLARZY in Poznan (POL).
The club owns 73 boats (for a total of 184 seats) from beginners' single canoes to 8 competition shells, as well as lockers and a fitness room with 14 ergometers and other apparels and dumbbells.
