Your very first strokes in rowing! In Level I you become part of a crew of eight, and are guided by your coxswain in the boat, and your instructor in a launch beside your crew. Level I introduces you to the fundamentals of our sport, and the rowing discipline of sweeping - rowing using one oar.

Following successful completion of Level I many participants choose to enroll in Level II.


This course is four weeks in lenght, twice per week on set day-pairs (Monday/Wednesday, Tuesday/Thursday, or Saturday/ Sunday) for eight classes total. All classes are 1.5 hours of instruction.The session is capped off with our famous Learn to Row Regatta, where we gather all crews who have learned with us during the month for more fun on the water, then a BBQ with some social deck time together.
