 The adaptive events are split into three categories:

  • LTA (Legs, Trunk, Arms) - for athletes with use of at least one leg, trunk and arms and also for those with visual and intellectual impairments. This category is rowed standard boats and sliding seats.
  • TA (Trunk and Arms) - for athletes with use of arms and trunk muscles. The boats in this category have fixed seat.
  • AS (Arms and Shoulders)  - for athletes with limited trunk control. The boats in this category have fixed seat and rower is strapped at upper chest level to only allow shoulder and arm movements.

Adaptive Rowing is a fast growing and increasingly competitive area of the rowing scene with a growing number of local clubs (including Maidenhead) welcoming adaptive rowers from beginner up to international levels of experience.
