    This is a waitlist for our next, but as yet unscheduled, Sculling De-Rust Clinic. By "registering," you will be among the first notified when we announce our next clinic.

    BIAC's De-Rust Clinics are for sweep rowers or scullers looking for a refresher on how to row or scull. You do not need to be a BIAC member to take a De-Rust clinic.

    Everyone will be in their own 1x. We have a large fleet to choose from.

    The $100 De-Rust fee includes the following:.  

    • One 2-hour session
    • Opportunities to become certified in a single shell. The class includes a flip test.

    Note: This class has a maximum enrollment of four. Participants should have previous rowing experience (sweep or scull) but you can be plenty rusty! If you're brand new to rowing, try a Learn to Scull or Learn to Row class.

    This is NOT available to novices. We recommend a year of rowing experience as a prerequisite to taking the clinic.
