Para Rowing

Rowing competitions are done in singles, double or teams of four that can be men’s women’s or mixed. Races are on 2000m of flat water and with teams competing head-to-head to move further on into the competition. Some boats will make the use of pontoons to increase stability. For information about the different classifications see http://rowingcanada.org/discover-rowing/types-rowing/para-rowing
