There are 2 rowing categories; heavyweight and lightweight.

Heavyweight is effectively open and there are no limits on the maximum or minimum mass of an individual. The mass of rowers varies massively from around 80kg to 110kg. Most rowers on national teams, or in the Oxbridge boat race will be 90-100kg. However there are many successful athletes that do not fall into this range.

Lightweight rowers have a maximum weight limit. For males this is 72.5kg for an individual and the average mass of the crew must be below 70kg. Single scullers may have a maximum mass of 72.5kg.
