That 'wow' factor from start to finish!

We start the experience with an introduction at City of Cambridge Rowing club.This is followed by a half an hour session on the clubs rowing machines (ergs), working on timing and technique. We then put the technique into practice by taking an 'eight' boat out and affixing this to the side of the river where participants are then able to perform the rowing stroke on the water.
Once we feel confident that you are able to follow instructions carefully, we will head back to the boathouse to fetch all the remaining blades. Quick picture moment and then its straight onto the river where you get a full hour of rowing on the River Cam!
