Summer social session times for 2022:
Saturday from 9am – one boat bookable by emailing Mike Breewood, one boat for ad hoc rowing
Sunday from 1pm – one boat bookable, one boat for ad hoc rowing
Tuesday from 6pm – both boats available, turn up and row
Thursday from 6pm – both boats available, turn up and row
All rowing is subject to tides, weather, or the boats being away at an external event. Additionally, members will often organise morning or afternoon outings via the group email or WhatsApp, after booking a boat with Mike Breewood.
If you would like to join us, come down to the club hut at Port Edgar (click on About Queensferry Rowing Club for directions) to join one of our social sessions, please contact Lesley (click on New Members for her details) before your first session to ensure it is on.
Race training sessions are held on Saturdays at 8am (and sometimes 7am!), Sundays at 10.30am, and Wednesdays at 6pm – again the timings depend on tides and weather.
The training sessions focus on technique and stamina, and can be very demanding physically. You’ll learn to perform a racing start and racing buoy turns. A typical regatta race is 2km long – pretty much the distance between the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Bridge and back. We will sometimes row a longer course to build up stamina. If that sounds like your cup of tea, contact Sharon to be included in the race training emails and Doodle poll: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A regular race training session for our youth rowers is held on Sundays at noon.
