If you have ever thought ‘I would like to try that’ or you have already tried rowing out and want to build your skills and gain confidence, The Goring Gap Boat Club will be running an autumn ‘Learn to Row’ course from the 20th October to the 10th November.
Earlier this year when we were training crews for our regatta a reporter from the Henley Standard visited. The story was published a couple of weeks ago and is now on the Henley Standard website.
‘Club that teaches novices how to mess about right royally on a river’
A national “Join-In” event has been arranged for the weekend after the Olympics to capitalise on Team GB’s success, and to encourage people to give new sports a try through local clubs – https://www.joininuk.org/ .
GGBC is participating and, with the unprecedented success of our rowers at Eton Dorney, we hope we can encourage people to come along and give rowing a try.
We will be running rowing sessions between 9am and midday on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th August. Anyone is welcome to come along and try rowing.
If you or any friends, relatives, or colleagues are interested in rowing, this would be a great opportunity to give it a try without cost or obligation.
