Learn to Row

We have run our Learn2Row courses for over 15 years and have taught hundreds of people to row on a beautiful stretch of the Thames.

The next course starts 30th July, running for 4 Saturdays in the afternoon: 6th Aug, 13th Aug & 20th August. There will be another course in October.

There is a maximum of 16 places on each course. Full payment required to confirm your place. They usually run over 4 weeks. The price is £150 and if graduates join the club following their course they get a £50 refund.

Anyone interested in joining a course should contact captainofrowing@goringgapbc.org.uk.

River sessions use our fleet of four touring boats, sponsored by Charles Stanley Wealth Management. These provide a stable and comfortable platform to put into practice the British Rowing stroke that we teach.

Subject to availability, we try to give participants on the course a session at the rowing tank, either in Oxford University’s Athletics Ground, or, as in the video below, in Radley College. The rowing tank means that the platform is literally rock solid, and makes it easy to perfect your technique.
