Rowing for Over 18’s

Screen Shot 2013-12-08 at 09.42.21

Green Withens is a British Rowing Training Centre and has a fleet of six single scull boats as shown below, plus a double sculls. Our target age range is Explorer Scouts, but why should they have all the fun?

On Monday evenings starting from the beginning of May there will be the opportunity for those aged 18 and over to row at Green Withens. The sessions will be suitable for either people who have rowed before, or for the complete novice. There is no need to be super fit to take part and no maximum age.

The single sculls all have stabilising floats to begin with, but as skills improve these can be removed. Don’t worry; you will be closely supervised by a safety boat in case you capsize or have any problems.

If you are interested in more information about joining this group or having a trial session, please email bookings@greenwithens.org.uk or ring 01484 425524

The cost is only £7.00 per session.

You must be able to swim 50 metres.

There will also be the opportunity to work towards British Rowing Proficiency Awards, Coaching Qualifications and Scout Adventurous Activity Permits.
