  • Ever wondered what it’s like to glide down a river… in the dark…backwards?

What you need

  • an alarm 
  • the drive to master a new & challenging sport
  • the force

There's a reason you see rowers wearing those unflattering tight rowing suits - loose clothing is a hazard! Loose shorts will get caught in the seat as it slides back and forth, and loose shirts can sometimes snag the oar handle as it comes close to your body. This doesn't mean you need absolutely skin tight clothing, or that you need to run out and buy anything special - just try to wear snug fitting shorts and top. Bicycle-type shorts and a relatively close-fitting T-shirt are ideal.

Wear your sports shoes for the first session as we will use the ergo to teach you some technique.

Be sure to bring a water bottle…it's thirsty work!
