Beginners’ course F18-2 to start in July
The course F18-1 is underway with over 20 participants. An outline schedule is set out below.
At this stage, I’m not sure when the next course (F18-2) will run as it depends on events and other personal commitments around rowing. I suspect that Sat 21st July 2018 would be the final choice.
Anyone interested should email me (john@firstname.lastname@example.org) and ensure that their details are on a list which is used only to inform you about rowing course related information.

Please email me to ensure you are kept informed about exact dates as they become confirmed. Courses later in the year will be announced soon but may be limited due to other commitments over the summer.
Taster Days are only offered when they can fit in with the smooth, ongoing development of those already rowing. People attending Taster Days can continue onto full courses (with their Taster Day fee credited against the course costs).

My own rowing commitments must take priority as they involve others who may depend on my availability.
See this overview for a reminder of how the course will work. This overview also indicates how you should deal with any absences due to your own holidays and other pre-existing or ad hoc commitments.
Courses are run subject to viable numbers (minimally 12 and preferably 15 persons). Each session may be tailored to the number and competences of those available. All dates are provisional and outings on the river may be compromised by outside factors including weather and flooding.
