Shoreham Rowing club are proud to announce their 2013 Open Day!

This is your chance to try out rowing, and is the perfect taster experience for all budding rowers.

2013 Events:

Row to Race! – Enter a crew of four adults (over 18s only) who have never rowed before. We will provide qualified coaches to teach you as much as we can in two 1 hour sessions on the water  as well as time on the indoor rowing machines over the course of the day. We’ll then get you racing for the prestigious title of Shoreham Rowing Club Open Day Champions 2013.

What’s more the winners gain entry into the Open Day Cup race where you’ll  pit yourselves against  experienced crews from Shoreham and other rowing clubs.

Try a Row! – Simply come along and sign up on the day and we’ll (numbers dependent) drop you into a boat with some experienced rowers and a coach and you’ll get some time to see if you might like rowing.

Race an Erg! – Come along and sign up to our rowing machine competition. A 200m sprint race on an indoor rowing machine (ergometer) in which you’ll have the chance to see how you compare to the best we have to offer in 5 categories: Open Male, Open Female, Junior Males and Junior Female (under 18) and Under 14s (mixed).
