Registration Is Now OPEN for April’s “On-the-Water Learn to Row” Class!

Our outdoors season of teaching the basics of rowing begins on Monday evening, April 17th, from 6:00-8:00pm. The session of twelve Monday and Wednesday evening classes will begin on Monday, April 17th and concluding on Wednesday, May 24th. Each class is from 6:00-8:00pm. The session cost is $240.

Participants will also have the option of competing in the Pittsford Regatta on Saturday, May 27th. It is a fun local regatta and you’ll have a blast if you choose to join us! Last year, GWC boats took home gold and silver medals from the event. A regatta fee (including a GWC tech shirt) of about $36 will apply.

A few notes… it is important to try to attend each class during a Learn-to-Row progression. Your knowledge base and skills build quickly with constant attendance. Plus, it is difficult to row a boat with only 7 people on board! Basic swimming and water treading skills are also an important background to having a fun and safe rowing experience.

Online registration is available at this link. Call 585-328-3960 with questions you might have. One warning is that rowing (and sculling) is very addicting!  🙂


Our FREE Indoor Rowing Intro on March 18th Was Fun!

Ethan Curren led a number of “first timers” in a great event at Pittsford’s Indoor Rowing Center on March 18th.
