What will I be doing?

This is a four evening course which will cover the British Rowing Stage One Award. Green Withens is a British Rowing Training Centre and has a fleet of single scull boats as shown below, plus a double scull. 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. This course can count towards your DofE Award

When can I come? This four evening course will be run on Mondays 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th June; sessions starting at 7.00pm and finishing at 9.00pm. You must be able to attend all the evenings and be able to swim 50 metres.

How much will it cost?Screen Shot 2013-12-08 at 09.42.21

The four evenings are £30.00 including a British Rowing handbook. Places are limited to twelve and will be strictly allocated in the order that the application forms are received.


Essential information:  Participants should be able to swim 50m as per Scout rules. Everyone needs to bring a complete change of clothing and a towel. It is important to wear warm clothing for water activities, as it feels cooler on the water. Green Withens is situated high on the moors and is often colder than less exposed sites. Plenty of warm clothing and a waterproof jacket and overtrousers or similar windproof outer garments and a woolly hat are necessary. Old trainers or similar soft footwear, with socks should be worn. Wetsuits will be provided, but over trousers must be brought to protect them. If it happens to be warm and sunny don’t forget a sunhat and suntan lotion.

There is no drinking water on site, please bring your own drinks and snacks.
