ADULT 'Learn To Row' Course - Gift voucher
This gift voucher covers the FULL cost of the rowing course, in an eight person rowing boat.
N.B. this is an e-voucher and will be emailed shortly after purchase.
The course consists of six separate sessions - outlined below;
SESSION 1 - ROWING EXPERIENCE DAY (3.5hrs)
Introduction to the club
Then off to the gym to learn the ‘rowing stroke‘ on the ergs (rowing machine)
Take the 'eight' boat out!
The group will be taught how to apply the technique on the river how to follow the coxes calls.
We then go rowing on the river cam!
SESSION 2 - Water outing (2hrs)
All participants take the VII boat out along with their blades - and we go rowing! We will row up the River Cam towards Stourbridge Common (approx. 2km away)
SESSION 3 - Group erg session (1hr)
With as many as 14 ergs (rowing machines) available, this will be a group exercise working on the separation, timing and technique. All of which is vital to the next step in rowing!
SESSION 4 - Water outing (2hrs )
Now we put that separation to work with technical exercises. We go further up the river onto 'The Reach', (approx. 3km away)
SESSION 5 - Indoor rowing tank experience (1hr - 1.5hrs)
This is an incredible experience in itself! The indoor rowing tank is at Downing College boat club and considered to be the most high tech indoor tank in the UK. There are cameras dotted all around with 2x large screens, allowing rowers to see themselves row in 'real time' - from multiple angles!
SESSION 6 - Water outing (2hrs )
Get the boat and blades out and now put all that technique into practice for some fine tuning followed by some mini 'race pieces' to really get the adrenaline flowing in full swing!
