Add to Basket
Discover one of the world’s most iconic watersports and train at the oldest known town rowing club with this Cambridge Rowing Experience.
Led by a Club Captain and experienced rowers, the session begins with an introduction to the club, equipment and boats. You’ll be given advice on the best rowing techniques along with time to practice on a Concept 2 rowing machine, before heading out on the water in a training tub to take a stroke on the river. You’ll learn how to keep the boat stable and follow the coxes’ commands.
Putting everything you’ve learnt into action, you’ll take the boat and blades out before embarking on an unforgettable journey on the River Cam. End the session by washing the boat and blades and be sure to snap some pictures of you in the boat. Whether new to the sport or wanting to improve on your existing skills, this is an experience not to be missed.
