Our first 2017 outdoor “Learn-to-Row” session begins on Monday evening, April 24th. The series of ten Monday and Wednesday evening classes will conclude on Wednesday, May 24th. Each class is from 6:00-8:00pm. The session cost is $200.
Our program will give you experience with crew team “sweep” boats. Following the initial series of lessons you will have the skills to progress to our next level class. “Rowing 2” classes consist of further sweep rowing technique and some sculling classes.
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. One warning is that rowing (and sculling) is very addicting!
Class space is limited. Feel free to call or email us with questions!
