Donations no longer accepted
Aberaeron Longboat Rowing Club is a friendly rowing club based in the picturesque harbour town of Aberaeron, Ceredigion. We row to sea in Celtic Longboats, very stable and safe boats that are 7.47m long with fixed seats, four rowers and a cox.
We are attempting the Celtic Challenge 2017 to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and Ty Glyn Davis Trust.
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. The Motor Neurone Disease Association does all that it can to enable everybody living with MND to receive the best care, achieve the highest possible quality of life and to die with dignity.
Our local charity, the Ty Glyn Davis Trust, offers holiday accommodation and leisure facilities to children with special needs and their families.
Celtic Challenge 2017: Rowing the Irish Sea
We are attempting the Celtic Challenge 2017, an arduous 90 mile crossing of the Irish Sea from Arklow to Aberystwyth. A team of 12 rowers will rotate rowing and coxing for the crossing, which is likely to take 20-24 hours.
The Celtic Challenge is a bi-annual rowing race that was started by Aberystwyth Rowing Club in 1989 to raise funds for a scanner for their local hospital. Since then the event has grown to include more than 20 boats from Wales, Ireland, England, Germany and the Netherlands. Most teams follow the charitable tradition of the first crossing and dedicate their attempt to raise funds for charities around the country.
