Learn to Row bootcamp

Our next boatcamp takes place in September 2012. It’s 3 training sessions a week for the month of September.

You’ll learn the fundamental techniques of rowing as well as building up your fitness with other beginner rowers - your first crew.

Most learner sessions are on the water in crew boats; fours and eights and you’ll also have a go in the learner single scull boats. All sessions are led by our experienced coaches.

Rowing is weather dependent and in Wellington on the water training can never be guaranteed. But never fear! We have a large number of rowing machines and weights that we’ll run structured sessions on to build your strength and fitness. The clubhouse also has changing room and hot showers.

If you just want to try a new form of exercise and meet some like minded people, or if you’ve got your sights set on the next Olympics then this is a great start!

The month long boatcamp costs $60 and includes full use of the boats and facilities. Registration is for those 18yrs or older.

Email to register, or call 027 787 27881.
