Adult Introduction to Rowing - Intermediate

Cancelled until further notice.

In this Intermediate level program, adults will further develop their sculling and boathandling skills in 1x, 2x and 4x. You will work on rowing as a crew, correct grip of the oar with feathering and squaring, good handle heights during stroke and recovery and make a start with getting the blades of the water during the recovery.

This is not only a great program for someone who just did a beginner course but also for someone who has rowed years ago and likes to refresh some skills before getting back in the boat with more experienced rowers. If you are not sure about your level please contact the programs coordinator
