Taster session

This is your very first experience of rowing with NGRC.

You will be shown the boat & oars, be informed on safety and basic commands required to enable you to move on to rowing in the second half of the session .This will be your first outing on the water. After this you will progress to learn to row sessions.

If you have any questions don’t worry, many people do when they first start. You can contact your Cox Phil Thompson by email or message us on the Facebook page ‘Newhaven Gig Rowing Club – Sussex’. We are looking forward to meeting you!
