This is a relaxed squad is for people who are either novices, coming through our Learn to Row courses, or are returnees to the sport after a long absence (e.g. people who rowed in their junior or college days who now feel the urge to get back on the water and recapture past glories).
This is a squad of mixed age and sex that operates as a stand alone Recreational rowing squad and as a feeder group into other squads in the club. We train on the water at least twice a week (sculling or sweeping), with an option to attend some additional land training sessions. We compete in various Heads and Regattas throughout the year, including mixed gender events. We train in most categories of boat, from stable quads to fine singles. The aim of the group is to enjoy being out on the water and, for those that wish to, we aim to develop skills to a level of proficiency which would enable you to use club boats outside of the specific coaching sessions.
