L2R crews race under the bridges at Elizabeth Quay on their last lesson

Coming soon

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.

Details of future courses will be found here.


Yes, there really are dolphins.
