Learn to Row Regatta

Introducing our Learn to Row Regatta, a fantastic opportunity for groups of four friends, colleagues, or even strangers to learn rowing together. Over five coaching sessions, participants bond and build skills, culminating in a thrilling 500m race. It’s not just about rowing; it’s a fun team-building experience!

Open to all, regardless of experience or time away from competition, crews can be all-female, all-male, or mixed. And don’t forget the costumes – they’re all part of the fun!

Our 2024 Learn to Row Regatta on March 10th was a blast! Take a peek at some snapshots below and stay tuned for details on our next regatta in 2025!


​​Training ideally starts December/January and runs through to the event in March. Lessons are provided by a dedicated coach who will work with the crew to prepare for the event.

Training sessions are organised by the crew and coach at times that suit them all.​​

The Outcome

True team based skills, health & fitness as well as competing in an actual rowing regatta for prizes and bragging rights!

Prizes are awarded to the winning crews and also for the most creative team name and costumes.

The Event

The next regatta will be held at A.P. Hinds Reserve, Bayswater. Stay tuned for the 2025 date! The distance of the race is 500 metres and everyone races at least twice.


The cost is just $150 a head – excellent value!

Bring family, friends and colleagues, a picnic and loud support for a fun day out on the lawn under the gum trees by the best water in Perth! The Oarhouse Café will be ready to keep you supplied with great coffee and tasty breakfast snacks.
