Learn to Row with ANA

Our next course starts on Sunday 7 February 2021 and runs through to 28 February. Please use this form to make an enquiry.

ANA conducts regular Learn to Row courses, designed to instruct complete beginners in the skills of boat handling and correct rowing technique. Most lessons happen in single sculls and there is also some rowing in crew boats.

The course comprises of four 1.5 hour lessons, typically on Sunday mornings beginning at 9:00 am. They generally run consecutively but may be interrupted by bad weather or other events.

The cost of the course is $100, including a $50 deposit to secure your place. The balance is payable at or before the first lesson. 


Additional rowing sessions following the course are offered free of charge to help you decide if you would like to join the club.


Participants must be 12 years and over and be capable of swimming at least 100 metres competently.

To ensure the safety of participants, we cap the course at 10 people.

ANA also runs a separate Learn to Row Regatta in which crews of four are taught to row in quad sculls before competing in a 500m race. The 2021 regatta will be held on March 14th. Click here for details.
