                    Introduction to Rowing Lessons. 

    These lessons are for people who are new to the sport. It is open to non-members.  Eight hours of instruction will get you to the point where you can safely launch, land, and row on your own.

    Four two hour classes. 

    Meet at the Club Locarno rowing shed which is located at the East end of the Jericho compound (near the Windsure hut).

    You may wish to bring a wetsuit or extra warm clothing for the second lesson. You will need to perform a self-rescue in the ocean in the second lesson. (Don't be nervous... everyone can do it!) 

    Please be aware that Covid-19 protocols are in effect at Jericho Sailing Centre and Club Locarno.

    All participants are required to wear a mask while in the compound, maintain physical distancing, wash hands often and be kind! Participant information will be collected to facilitate contact tracing if required.

    Initial Rowing checkouts on the Echo Rowboats will cover:
    • overview of the fleet
    • rigging and derigging
    • launching and landing
    • use of logbooks
    • policies and practices
    • distance rowing (where to go, tides, wind/waves, currents, hazards)
    • capsize recovery (i.e. get back into the boat from deep water)

    Note that new Rowing members should bring a wetsuit (if you wish) and towel, as they must demonstrate a successful capsize recovery to complete their checkout.

    Advanced Rowing Checkouts

    Topics covered during checkouts on Maas rowboats, Liteboats and the Wintech Double will depend on the experience level of the individual rower. Echo rowers with at least 2 years experience (or have rowed 10 times or more), and rowers who are confident to handle larger, heavier boats on land and on the water are welcomed to join. Basically, if you are confident to row to the 3rd bell marker in winter conditions, feel free to request this checkout. 

    The Rowing Director will get back to you shortly to schedule your checkout. All checkouts take place at the Rowing Shed at the East end of the Jericho Sailing Centre compound. Come prepared to go rowing!
