EXPLORE – Learn to Row Course

The course is for adult (16+) beginners, and no experience of rowing is necessary. On the course qualified coaches and a team of helpers will teach you the basics of rowing, sculling, coxing and indoor rowing. Exit routes allow you to make the transition into the club, by joining either the recreational rowing group or the development squad. Over the last 5 years the Learn to Row programme has enabled DARC to become the fastest growing rowing club in the country.

The cost of the course is £95 and this includes a British Rowing Handbook.
