Or if you’re new to sport and fitness and want to learn a new skill in a friendly and supportive environment, then come along.
The course is an introduction, we will teach you the core rowing and sculling technique while working on your rowing fitness. Sessions will take place on the land and river, and you will always be supervised by a coach who will lead the sessions. The course is an introduction and will hopefully whet your appetite to continue learning to row. There is no obligation to continue or sign-up as a member after the course but we hope you will have enjoyed your time enough that you are interested in joining one of our squads to develop your rowing further.
Please be at the club by 10:00 (if the car park is full, there is additional free public parking across the river) when you arrive ask for Chris Moody, Paul Breheny or learn to row.
You must be able to swim. Please wear warm but flexible clothes e.g. tracksuit, leggings, shorts, fleece, t-shirt, waterproof top depending on the weather, layers are good.
The first weekend we will show you around the club, get you to practice in the gym, bank tub and if possible take you for a short outing in a boat.
