  • This is for new members who have rowing experience - demonstrate your skills and get cleared to use the fleet.

This checkout is intended for new members who are experienced rowers and want to have their skills checked out so they can get on the water (mandatory prerequisite to using the fleet). 

We will be getting on the water and rowing.

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