“The club have worked tirelessly over the past few years in gaining this award, undertaking a vigorous training and education programme for their coaches and volunteers,” she said.

Wiseman’s Bridge rowing club use the floating pontoon at Saundersfoot Sailing Club with whom they have a strong partnership, for safe access into the water.

The club are also working closely with the Tenderfoots disabled sports club that meet at the Regency Hall in Saundersfoot, by introducing rowing to the members with their indoor rowing equipment.
