$60 for Learn to Row Course ($150 Value)

Class meets twice each week for three weeks, and prepares students to go on to the club’s more advanced programs. On the first day of class, budding oarsmen tour the boathouse and watch a safety video that illustrates proper precautionary measures. After a rundown of terminology and equipment, students learn how to carry the boat to the dock and lower it into the water. They then practice getting in and out, and once proficient with operating the boat’s child-safety locks, spend the rest of their class time out on the water practicing their rowing strokes and working as a team.

Kingston Rowing Club

Kingston Rowing Club was founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1978, and operates on the efforts of its volunteer staff. This impassioned group of rowers trains teams for and participates in many regattas each year, and has produced multiple members of the Canadian national rowing team.

Kingston Rowing Club’s coxswains shout orders and spout encouragement to their water-slicing teams of adult and junior rowers. Participants in both recreational and competitive programs row their shells across Inner Harbour, and the club’s prerequisite for either program is the Learn to Row class, which introduces novices to the sport of crew.

For those who have team spirit and enjoy athletic competition
