History/Hanes

Formed in 2004, the club was started by a small core of ex-welsh rowers looking to take advantage of the newly barraged river Taff. Originally located at Cardiff Bay Yacht Club, the club rapidly grew into a performance orientated club. With a focus on small boats and some access to some of the best waters in the country, Cardiff City was able to establish itself as a place for athletes to develop a higher standard of rowing, helping to realise the potential of rowing in South Wales. 

In 2013, the club re-located to Channel View Leisure Centre, where it was able to quickly established itself into the heart of rowing in Cardiff City. 

2016, was a new partnership with Cardiff and Vale Schools Rowing Academy, helping to develop the potential of junior rowers in Cardiff and the surrounding area.

 

Ffurfiwyd y clwb yn 2004 gan griw bychan o gyn rwyfwyr Cymru a welai'r cycle i fanteisio ar y datblygiadau newydd yn y Bae a'r Taf gyda'r morglawdd. Yn wreiddiol, lleolwyd y clwb yn Clwb Hwylio Bae Caerdydd, ond tyfodd y clwb yn gyflym i fod yn glwb cystadleuol Gyda'r clwb yn canolbwyntio ar y cychod bach llwyddodd y clwb i sefydlu ei hunan fel cyrchfan i athletwyr a gyrhaeddai safon uchel o rwyfo.

Yn 2013, ad-leolodd y clwb yng Nghanolfan Hamdden Channel View, gan ymgartrefu a sefydlu ei hun yn ganolbwynt rhwyfo.

Datblygodd partneriaeth newydd yn 2016 rhyngom ag Academi Rhwyfo Ysgolion Caerydd a'r Fro a hynny er mwyn datblygu potensial rhwyfwyr ieuanc Caerydd a'r cyffiniau.
