Something New– it’s great to try something new

A gateway to future fun–it may be the beginning to a lifetime of enjoyment in rowing.

A final couple of words:

We do endeavour to accommodate everyone that is interested in rowing. As there is a random element to the breadth of fitness etc of a crew, we ask that people allow for this.

In addition, the Club is constrained in it’s boat and coaching resources. We will accommodate as many people as we can without overburdening the facilities, but it is possible that we will have to turn some people away. Our policy will be first-in, first-served.
