Cox training – time to sign up

Rachel writes: As part of our development plan, we offer coxing training each year. Our trainers, Mike McDowall, Peter Locke and John Howell, are ready to make a date in January.
Coxing is vital to the running of the club sessions. We all love to row, but we all need a cox to allow us all to enjoy this rowing. We aim to have as many people as possible gain experience in coxing. Sharing in coxing at any time – whether on a social row or a training row  – there is always a skipper on board.
If you have completed your Competant Crew form, please consider this next step of training. If you haven’t finished that form, now is the time!!  We know we have some strong keen candidates amongst you all!! We will also have a Man Overboard session set up soon, for those who need to ‘tick that box’!! See this page for more details.

The cox training will be at a weekend and will consist of interesting classroom-based sessions plus on-the-water training.
We hope to set a date for this very quickly, so please email your interest to me at  rachelholburn[at]
