Clothing: Depending on the weather bring jogging or gym kit, preferably closer fitting (due to moving parts and moving seats).

Life jackets will be supplied and will need to be worn over the top of clothes.

Valuables: You will be able to keep small valuables in a dry bag with the coaches.

Coaches: The group will be coached by our dedicated coaching team that are also part of London Youth Rowing.

The boat: We will use a mixture of quad and octuple scull boats, using two blades (oars) for each rower. This type of rowing is safe and stable and is the perfect way to introduce rowers to crew rowing.
