On Friday 30th January we were joined by 1st Windmill Hill Scout Group.


The two hour session flew by with Scouts, Explorers, Leaders and Rowers enjoying the experience. After a quick ergo demonstration, the Scouts (and their leaders!) were put to the test through two team races – quite the spectacle! With the use of our erg program, the Scouts were able to see their progress on a projection screen, adding to the competition.

Rowing Club members Matthew Johnson, Caitlin Page and Patrick Mitchell were on hand to guide the scouts through the events, as well as occasionally assisting teams in need!

While recovering with a well deserved drink and biscuit, the Scouts were given a guided tour of the club and boathouse – talking about the differences of sculling and sweep, as well as giving the Scouts a chance to ask any questions they had about the sport.


If you are an organiser or member of a local youth group that may enjoy a visit to the Rowing Club for some friendly indoor racing, please contact us on: secretary4grc@gmail.com
