Over the last 25 years Sarah Hayward has contributed hugely to rowing, founding her own club, City of Swansea Rowing Club, and fostering an inclusive approach that empowers everybody. Sarah does everything from driving the van and crews to events, to acting as a governing body coach educator.
Sarah has never been deterred by setbacks, an attitude she instils in others, along with high morale as well as a desire to compete. Her positivity brings out the best in people.
Each year a Trophy is dedicated to the memory of the late Lord Aberdare, a founder member of the Trust; Sarah was selected this year in recognition of Lord Aberdare’s strong links with Wales.
