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 June 2018. We row upstream to <a href="photoframes/map01.html">Jesus Lock</a> or downstream as far as <a href="photoframes/map02.html">Bait&#039s Bite Lock</a>. <br></br> <font size="+2"><b>Safety</b></font> <br> 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. <br></br> <font size="+2"><b>Coaching</b></font> <br> 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 <br></br> <font size="+2"><b>Social events</b></font> <br> 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! <br></br> <font size="+2"><b>Safeguarding</b></font> <br> Camrowers is committed to providing a safe environment for all its members and visitors.
