Once you have completed the Registration procedure and been confirmed as a Novice member you can book onto these more involved rows 

There are 4 seats on this row for people who’ve completed the Maiden Row. You will be accompanied by a fully trained Cox and two competent crew members.

We will keep working with you on the basic technique and you will get to explore the Ouse valley a bit more.

The aim is to get you on to the Competent/Open Rows as soon as we can. 

Once certified as a competent rower by your supervising Cox you can choose to progress to either an Associate membership or a Full membership.

Open Row

These rows are designed for people who have completed the Novice membership training and been certified as competent by a supervising Cox.

During these rows you will get to explore the beautiful Ouse estuary or maybe even head out to sea into Seaford bay.

All rowers must have completed a PARQ form and be at Full or Associate membership level and must let the cox know if there are any additional injuries or needs (not already disclosed on the parq form) prior to the row. 

£3 per seat for Full members - £6 for Associate members

These rows are designed for people with 4 - 5 hours available interested in an exploring or adventure row.
