Rowing is a great way to get fit and have fun. As a member of our club you can decide whether you want an occasional social row or train on a regular basis in order to row competitively or help improve your fitness.
Our rowing times vary over the winter, regular updates giving the specific time and date is given below.
LEARN TO ROW
During the winter there are no regular novice rowing sessions but you are welcome to come along for a taster session. Join us for up to 3 taster sessions before deciding whether you wish to continue and become a member of the club. Taster sessions are free but a donation to help club funds would be appreciated.
We recommend you wear layers of clothing, nothing to bulky or restrictive, and tracksuit bottoms or sport leggings/shorts. Bring a waterproof/windproof jacket and cyclist gloves, if you have a pair. You will get your feet wet getting in and out of the gig so we suggest a pair of waterproof shoes with a sturdy sole or old pair of trainers. In the winter many of our rowers wear wellington boots.
Don’t forget to bring some water it is important that you keep yourself hydrated.
