Come along to ‘Introduction to Rowing’ day

Ever thought you might like to try rowing, well now is your chance?

Grafton Rowing Club will be holding its next “Introduction to Rowing” on Saturday September 14 at its clubhouse at the river end of Prince Street, commencing at 8am.

Minimum age is 12. Participants must also be able to swim. Please wear gym or bike pants, and bring a hat, water and sunscreen.

The morning includes a tour of the club’s boats and equipment; some instruction on rowing techniques, followed by a row on our beautiful river. No fear of falling out, boats will also contain two of the club’s experienced, friendly rowers.

All this is free, with no obligation to continue.

If however you wish to continue in this great sport, lessons will be held each Saturday, with a fee of $50 for six lessons.
