Beginner's Boat Race

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream...

Spend an afternoon on the river, learning to row. You'll join a group of 12 people in the same "boat" as you - yes we like puns. There will be some experts on hand to guide you through the process. You'll start off learning to use a rowing machine the "proper" way - don't worry we won't spend too much time on this boring bit! Then we'll get you out in a boat (4 or 8 to a boat) to feel the wind in your hair and have the water all around... Then there will be some time to have a coffee or something stronger, if restrictions allow, and get to know your fellow crewmates. We can't guarantee to turn you into the next Steve Redgrave or Helen Glover on the strength of this event. But we CAN guarantee you'll have a whole lotta fun! We will run the event come rain or shine, so make sure you bring appropriate clothing - shorts and/or leggings are the order of the day, nothing which will flap about whilst you row. Also, wrap up warm, even if you don't think you'll need to. However, there are some conditions in which - for safety reasons - we won't be able to get out on the water. So keep your fingers crossed it doesn't get too windy or cold!! But don't worry, although it's England - and it's windy and cold regularly - it has to get pretty bad before we knock things on the head for safety reasons. Having said this, we do not take this lightly and make full risk assessments of conditions for your, and our, safety. Other things you should know: - You'll be using your hands on the oar quite a bit, so we need to warn you of the odd blister - if you don't get at least one, you're not trying hard enough... - Rowing is a physical sport, you might break a sweat and break a nail in the process - Gentlemen you have been warned! - You might get wet - possibly very wet - but the chance of falling for a swim is pretty remote. So, we will keep your valuables safe and sound away from the water and you will not be able to take them into the boat with you - Bring a change of clothes - due to restrictions it might not be possible to access changing facilities, but have something warm and dry to put on afterwards - again we will keep this safe and sound for you. - For safety reasons, we cannot accept people with underlying health conditions, such as heart problems.
