Rowing is one of the oldest forms of water transport. It is a recreational and competitive sport that has been around for centuries. Although originally practiced as a means of transportation, today rowing is a popular competitive sport and recreation activity. Rowing can be performed either as a solo pursuit or in a group. It is used in many forms of competitive racing, including sprint, regatta, and ocean rowing races. While some competitive rowers use customized rowing boats, many recreational rowers prefer kayaks, canoes and other traditional vessels. The primary focus of rowing is on technique, as an effective stroke requires precise coordination and timing. Rowing offers a full-body workout and promotes physical and mental wellbeing.
