Bookable rowing sessions are organised by our skippers who are ordinary members of the club and published on our booking page.If no sessions are showing that means no skippers are available. If you’d like to get out on the river more often why not become a skipper?
We try to run open sessions on Saturdays and / or Sundays but this is dependent on skipper availability. Check the booking page to see when sessions are running.
Notification of new sessions & club activities
There are three ways you can be notified about new club events:
Email from Eventbrite (our booking system)
To receive immediate notification whenever new club events (rowing sessions, litter pick, maintenance etc) are created go to our booking page and click the ‘follow’ button. You will asked to create an Eventbrite account which is free. Creating an account has some advantages, mainly that you won’t need to enter your details every time you book. This is the best way to be sure you’re kept in the loop.
After you’ve created an account go to Account settings and choose Email preferences. Under Notifications, tick the box When an organiser you follow announces a new event. Untick any boxes that don’t interest you.
When new club events are created an automatic email will be sent to all members at a fixed time each day. This notification is not as immediate as following us on Eventbrite
Slightly more specialised, but if you use a News Reader (also known as RSS), copy and paste the URL (web address) below. New events will appear in your reader.
All members are encouraged to participate in the club. As well and learning how to row and developing your technique you will be encouraged to learn basic boat handling and manoeuvring skills. The more members willing to become skippers the more rowing sessions we can enjoy.
