New session time of 7:30am Sundays

The Sunday morning novice squad is a new session for:

  - novice or inexperienced rowers who want to work in a regular crew, and

  - rowers who are coming back to rowing after a break.

Our first session last Sunday 11 July 2021 at 8.30am with 2 quads was a very good session once we actually got onto the water. We were delayed getting our boats on the water due to the number of other rowers at that time carrying their boats in and out of the shed, available trestles being used by others, and finding space on the beach. After the session we discussed what we should do in future and the unanimous view was to bring the start time forward to 7.30am and aim for a 9.00am finish.

So please note the Novice Squad session time is now Sundays 7.30am.

The session is otherwise unchanged. Rowing is in quads with a crew of 5. Rowers will rotate steering the boat, so that as well as improving your rowing skills you will learn to steer as well and become self-sufficient as a crew. There will be a coach per crew for very new rowers.

The focus is on developing -

  Rowing and coxing technique

  Fitness

  Familiarity with the river

  Boat handling

  Shed protocols

  Safety

In time you will be able to go out as a recreational crew independently and at times of your own choice, and be comfortable and safe.

You also will be able to comfortably train with the racing squad in the novice/novice crew category and get to know your fellow club members.
