                      Advanced Coastal Rowing: Training

      These lessons are for Club Locarno members who wish to improve their technique. Two sessions of two hours each, during which you will learn more about:

      • Incorporating dynamic warmup and stretching into your repertoire. Increasing your range of motion can only be a good thing ... like eating oatmeal for breakfast.
      • Using the ergometer to improve your fitness.  This can only be a good thing as well, but, using the oatmeal analogy, not as "tasty". Sort of like liver for dinner. Still, numbers don't lie, and these sessions will help you improve those pesky erg-scores.
      • Developing on-water training plans for sprints and endurance. "By failing to plan, one is planning to fail": don't let this be you!
      • Training in the Wintech Explorer, Double- or Pair-rigged. This is rowing's version of synchronized swimming ... it's harder than it looks! But oh so much fun when you get the hang of it. The smiles on synchronized swimmers tells you all you need to know.

      So, bring yourself and a positive attitude to the Club Locarno Rowing shed, at the East end of the Jericho compound, near the Windsure hut.

        Keep in mind that even if it is a hot day, it is easy to get cold if you are falling in the water a bunch and/or if the wind is high. If you wish, you can rent wetsuits from Windsure.

                        Advanced Coastal Rowing: Technique

        These lessons are for Club Locarno members who wish to improve their technique. Two sessions of two hours each, during which you will learn more about:

        • Drills, skills - and thrills! - of the catch, drive, finish, and recovery, as well as the balance, coordination, and timing required to improve your confidence on the water. Few things are better than rowing in a perfectly-balanced boat, spot-on catches, getting all your power out onto the blades, your boat moving under you, and your mind in rhythmic sync with your body. Your Inner Buddha will thank you.
        • Adapting to rough water. After all, when the going gets rough ... well, the going is going to be rough. Expect to be challenged. 'Nuff said!
        • Having "fun" on the ergometer. Bonus: you will also learn that at Club Locarno, we have a VERY broad definition of "fun".
        • Rowing our Wintech Explorer, either as a Double or Pair. Our doughty Instructor will help you decide which "version" is best suited to your ability and goals. If you've never rowed this boat, come prepared for SPEED!

        So, bring yourself and a positive attitude to the Club Locarno Rowing shed, at the East end of the Jericho compound, near the Windsure hut.
