What is Para Rowing?

Adaptive rowing is rowing or sculling for rowers with a disability who meet the criteria set out in the adaptive rowing classification regulations. Adaptive implies that the equipment is “adapted” to the user to practice the sport, rather than the sport being “adapted” to the user.  Para rowing classifications include single, double and a crew of four. The classifications for para rowing are: legs, trunk and arms (PR1), trunks and arms (PR2), and arms and shoulders (PR3).
