This is the most symmetrical form of rowing and especially suited to older people. It also means that rowers can choose to row solo or in doubles or in a quad. <br></br> <font size="+2"><b>Boats to suit all abilities</b></font> <br> The Club's fleet includes <a href="photoframes/boatsvirus09.html">Virus</a> training boats, which are especially stable and manoeuvrable for learners. We have a coxed <a href="photoframes/boatsdouble01.html">double</a>, a coxed <a href="photoframes/boatsquad13.html">quadruple</a>, both of which are stable boats and suit those who like to row in a team and those who have difficulty turning round to look where they are going. Our <a href="photoframes/boatsmondego01.html">mondego</a> boats enable one rower to go out with a cox and are valuable for use in coaching and for rowers with visual disabilities.The club also has a number of "fine" boats for the expert rower - both double and single <a href="photoframes/boatsmike05.html">sculling boats</a>. New additions to the club's fleet are Explorer and Swift singles and uncoxed doubles, which provide a halfway house between a stable and a "fine" boat. <br><br> <font size="+2"><b>We renovate and repair</b></font> <br> Our new boathouse means we no longer have to store our boats outdoors, making it much easier to keep boats in good condition. There are, however, always repairs and improvements to be made by our skilled volunteers. </font> </div> </td> <td width="5%"></td> </tr> </table> </td> <td align="right" valign="top" width="25%"> <table width="100%"> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/members03.html"> <img src="photos/members03.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our members" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photo to see club members</b></font> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/boats036.html"> <img src="photos/boatsquad05.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our boats and members" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photo to see club boats</b></font> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/newboats01.html"> <img src="photos/newboats01.jpg" alt="click here for photos of new boats being repaired" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photo to see new club boats</b></font> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> <table width="100%"> <tr bgcolor="orange"> <td align="center"> <font size="+2"> quote - "I was thrilled to be promoted to fine boats - not as hard as it looks" </font> </td> </tr> </table> </div> </font> </body> </html>
