Despite the inclement weather of late, training for the 2022 season continues at the club in Hastings. No on water rowing has been possible for the last few weekends unfortunately but a hard core of members have been making use of the rowing machines and the new gym equipment. More ladies than men at present but the biggest turn out continues to be the under 18 squad on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings from 17.00hrs. This bodes well for this season with them all keen to race. Our Senior Lady rowers are also making the most of the new gym and have been training hard and spurring each other on (see video clip below).
The committee have agreed to the purchase of 3 more Concept2 rowing machines giving us 8 in total. They also agreed to the acquisition of two more sets of sculling blades allowing us to get the quad, a double, and single on the water together. This will help us to coach and train the Junior squad.
Training continues on Sunday mornings, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings for established club members with Wednesday evenings from 6 designated for newcomers to have a go. Please see the link below for a free taster session if you would like to join us.
