Students from St Angela’s who row, predominantly train with Cork Boat Club, Shandon rowing club and Lee Rowing club. There is an annual schools rowing regatta which students can compete in. Students need to have their access to their own boats and transport to the competition to enter. The schools regatta is organised by Rowing Ireland and allows students from different clubs to row together representing St Angela’s.
