1. Learn2Row Summer course
The 2016 course is now full and the next course will be in summer 2017.
The course runs for six weeks and costs £170 (2016 price). Each participant will sign up for one class per week for those six weeks.
For those people who wish to row recreationally only, there are separate courses offered (please see below). If you are unable to attend one of these and wish to row recreationally, you are welcome on the summer course.
If there is sufficient interest we will run women only sessions on Monday evenings. All other courses will be mixed.
The weekly programme will be as follows:
· Mon evening 7pm – 9pm (women only)
· Tue evening 7pm – 9pm
· Wed evening 7pm – 9pm
· Sat morning 8am – 10am
· Sat morning 11am – 1pm
*Please note: there are 16 places available in each session. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
The course commences mid-July and on the sixth week there is a fun regatta so normal classes will be replaced by one Saturday class for all.
