This is an introductory course for those who have never rowed or have rowed in the distant past.

The course is run over 5 Sundays and costs $195 (+ credit handling fees) per person.  You need to be over 16 years of age and be able to swim 100m.

You also need to be able to lift a boat overhead (as part of a crew) and your body needs to be flexible enough to compress up during the stroke.  It’s a good idea to do some stretching before and after every session.  Aerobic fitness (or lack of it) is not an issue for the beginner course.

We reserve the right to assess and refuse applicants for the sake of their own safety and welfare, and that of others.

Because each boat requires 8 rowers, we need a minimum of 8 registrations to proceed with any LTR programme. If a LTR course is cancelled due to insufficient registrations your payment will be refunded. When there are more than 8 registrations, we need close to 16 people to fill a second boat. If we don’t reach 16, those who registered earliest will secure their place and the later registrations may need to be cancelled and refunded. So if you want to do it, get on and register, the earlier the better.
