East Bay Rowing - Learn to Row

Wednesday, May 31, 2023

LEARN TO ROW - Grab a friend, sister, brother, mother, father, son, daughter, aunt, uncle...or just YOU! EBR has so many opportunities to learn to row this late spring and summer. Class size is limited to 5 rowers so they will fill quickly.

2023 EBR Summer LEARN TO ROW

Summer is the best time to play on the river! Join your friends and learn to row.

Sign up for 1 or more classes. There is always room to grow in rowing as you move from stable rowing shells to less stable racing shells.

Step 1 is learning to scull. Sculling is done with 2 oars and you will be in your own, very stable single.

Step 2 is learning to sweep. Sweep rowing is done with 1 oar and you are in a boat with teammates.

Rowing is a water sport- you will get wet. Participants will water launch their shells. This means they will enter the water to their knees to launch as we do not have a dock.

In addition, safety of our rowers is first and foremost. Weather conditions in are quite variable. It is the coaches decision to be on the water. If available, we will meet indoors pending unfavorable conditions.
