What do I wear?
Close fitting shorts (spandex bike-type shorts are ideal) or tights, and a t-shirt (with a sweatshirt or fleece if it is cold). Remember to wear/bring socks and a water bottle.
How do I keep rowing after Learn to Row?
LTR graduates can join recreational rowing for the remainder of the season, as a ‘Novice’ rower. There is a special Novice membership fee that offers a lower price for the rest of the season. Details will be discussed at the end of LTR sessions.
