Once again York City Rowing Club is supporting the York 50+ festival by offering a taster rowing event.  This year’s rowing event will be on Thursday 4th October, starting at 09:00.

The rowing taster session will be offered by York City Rowing Club’s Leisure group, which welcomes people of all ages and aspirations and, through relaxed but structured coached sessions, helps them to develop both competence and confidence on the water.  Coached rowing sessions are currently held 9-11am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The social aspect of our group is really important too. The members regularly meet for post-session coffee and cake, informal get-togethers and even the occasional beer (or two) after a sunny summer outing.
Participants in the taster session will receive:
  • a boathouse tour;
  • a technical session on a rowing machine; and
  • a short boat trip.
All activities will be supervised by experienced coaches.  Please bring a change of clothing, for the session you should wear sports clothing plus a sweatshirt (not hoodie), changing facilities are available at the club.  The exact format of the session will be subject to modification on the day to take account of river and weather conditions.
There will be a charge of £10 for the session.
There will be coffee and cakes available after the session in the club’s recently refurbished bar.
