Advanced rowing course

Our Advanced rowing course is for anyone who has successfully finished Learn to Row 1 & 2 and for adult rowers who have either sculled at university or school or at club level. If you need to refresh your technique, we advise you to first take one of our Learn to Row courses.

The aim of the advanced course is to improve your technique, fitness and become familiar with racing concepts and put them into practice. During the course the intensity of the sessions will increase and culminate in a simulation time trial or regatta. Our advanced courses start every eight weeks throughout the year.

Overview of the course:

  • Duration: 8 weeks
  • 1 hour per lesson
  • Suitable everyone who has finished Learn to Row course 2

What is a rowing course and how does it work?
At 6 times in the year, a rowing course of 8 weeks starts. You can sign up individually. We will schedule you together a team of up to 4 people. You can also compose a team of 4 people yourself.
I've never rowed before. For which rowing course can I register the best?
You can sign up for our Learn to Row course 1.
Do I need to attend all classes?
Since the skills you learn in rowing are cumulative, it is important that you make every effort to come to each class so you learn along with your group. You should communicate with your coach in advance if you cannot make a class.
Do we still have class in inclement weather?
Yes! We row on the water in the rain and the cold, but if there is thunder and lightning or it is very windy, we have an alternative training. Classes will not be rescheduled due to weather.
Can I make up classes that I miss?
No, unfortunately, we do not offer make-up classes.
What is the refund/credit policy?
No refunds will be given once the program has started. If you withdraw at least two weeks before the first session, you will be credited for the class, minus a 40 pounds processing fee.
Are there showers and changing rooms at the boathouse?
There are showers and a small changing room. Feel free to change once you arrive at the boathouse.
Where can I park?
Parking at the Putney Embankment is not advisable, however, there are some limited streets to find parking.
