We row throughout the year on weekday mornings, which are ideal for Camrowers, as there are very
few other boats on the river at these times. There are 2 sessions starting at 9.30 and 11.15.
Our long established sessions are on Mondays and Wednesdays and, thanks to the new boathouse, we
have plans to gradually add more mornings, starting with Fridays from October 2017. We row
upstream to Jesus Lock or downstream as far as
Bait's Bite Lock.
Safety is paramount, with a duty officer, coaches and trained volunteers at every session,
to ensure safe lifting, and that rowers have the right boats to suit their abilities and
the conditions. Everyone is well trained on how to avoid a capsize, but is also well equipped
and informed on what to do if one happens.
Our coaches are all members of Camrowers and have British Rowing Level 2 Coaching qualifications.
New members receive up to 6 weeks one to one coaching, starting with rowing machines and then
taking to the river in Virus and other stable training boats. Coaching also includes a capsize
drill in a local swimming pool. More advanced coaching is available once members have become
more familiar with the sculling techniques
For many members the hot drink and a chat at the end of a session are an essential part of the
morning. The Club also holds social events every year, which have included a Christmas Lunch at
our neighbouring Bowls Club, barbeques and picnics - sometimes by boat!
